NRECA is committed to helping electric cooperatives address the learning and development challenges of a rapidly changing industry and workforce. To this end, NRECA has developed the SMDP and will retire the Supervisory Certificate and the Management Essentials Certificate at the end of 2018. If you are currently working toward either or both of these certificates, please review the questions and answers below to understand how the courses you’ve taken can be applied toward the SMDP.
