DLE Technical Services, LLC

DLE Technical Services, LLC (DLE) is a 100% Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and is a Small Disadvantaged Business.  DLE was established in 2006 by Rob De La Espriella (hence the initials DLE), a former Navy nuclear submarine officer, NRC inspector and nuclear plant senior manager.  Initially established to provide expert advise for major improvement initiatives in power plant operations and Nuclear Quality Assurance (NQA), DLE grew from a single person into a small business in only three years.  DLE now provides high-value, cost-effective professional training and technical support to the Department of Energy's (DOE) National Laboratories and headquarters offices, the Department of Defence (DOD) and other Federal Agencies, commercial clients in the Energy sectors, and Engineering companies in the United States, Canada and Switzerland. 


Since 2014, DLE has been certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI)  as a Registered Education Provider.  We offer BlueDragon workshops (from half-day to three days) for Critical Thinking and Complex Problem Solving (i.e. tools and techniques for conducting root cause analysis, apparent cause analysis and safety/accident investigations), as well as workshops on "Excellence in Conduct of Operations."  The 3-day BlueDragon workshop awards 27 credit hours of continuing education.  


Our core team is comprised of talented and respected consultants that have held senior management positions in their fields.  DLE is highly regarded by our clients for our ability to provide “expertise where and when you need it.”
