As automobile manufacturers begin to market and sell electric vehicles (EV) in North American, a demand will be created for qualified individuals to install the required charging stations supporting these vehicles. While these installations may look much like other electrical equipment installations, details that are unique to the technology make them anything but routine.
This 2 1/2 hour, self-paced course presents the process of installing an Electric Vehicle Charging System (EVCS) according to code requirement set forth in the National Electrical Code (NEC) with consideration for additional local jurisdictional requirements.
The course covers the installation processes including adapting an existing design to the physical location where the charging system will be installed. A description of charging systems from Level 1 through Level 3 and the special requirements for each, a review of NEC Article 625 and the requirements for installing each of the three levels of charging systems. The course also includes the process for system commissioning and project closeout.
To receive the EVCS installer certificate at the end of the course, you must pass a comprehensive online assessment.
