Christopher currently works for American Electric Power (AEP) in Ohio as a System Control Center Operator and obtained his NERC Reliability Coordinator Certification on 1 February 2013.
In Chris’ own words:
“The Power4Vets training gave me head start in finding a career as I transitioned out of the Navy. Showing up to my job interview with a NERC RC certification helped me get the job.
Word is getting out about the quality employees produced by the Power4Vets program. As more and more veterans complete the program and find success in civilian careers, employers are taking special note when Power4Vets is
mentioned on a resume. They know that they are getting a self – motivated quality
employee.Thank you very much for all your help in completing my NERC Certification and transitioning
into a career. I feel a debt of gratitude to Power4Vets for the great opportunity it has given me”
