Our Mission: To help veterans start new careers in the exciting and evolving energy sector.

This conviction gave rise to the Power4Vets™ training program in 2009. This multi-faceted program is designed to match the human talent needs of America’s electric power organizations with the unique skills, experience, and knowledge of United States Military Veterans.

The Power4Vets™ helps vets find the best job openings, and we also help facilitate them for those jobs by providing relevant online coursework, online simulator training, online certification prep work, personal coaching, and individualized job placement assistance.

To date we have helped over 300 veterans start or advance their careers in the power industry.

Power4Vets graduates work at 90+ different employers nationwide. The Power4Vets network of employers is growing as companies are eager to hire our students because they have applicable military experience, world-class simulator training, and the valuable NERC RC certification.
