Research and development in recent years means that battery technology has greatly improved leading to wider use in residential settings. When combined with domestic microgeneration, such as solar photovoltaics (PV), electrical energy storage systems (EESS) enable customers to store the energy they generate, making use of off-peak rates and smart tariffs to save on electricity bills and reduce reliance on fluctuating grid prices.
The Level 3 Battery Storage training course covers the installation of dedicated EESS in accordance with the IET code of Practice. It provides detailed theoretical and practical knowledge enabling candidates to apply the relevant regulations and guidance and safely work on battery storage systems.
It’s a 2–day course designed for experienced domestic and commercial electricians; it’s an ideal add-on for solar PV installers looking to help their customers generate and store their own power while accessing the most attractive Smart Export tariff.
A breakdown of what the course covers:
During the course, you will receive practical training, including work on purpose-built battery storage rigs and fully functioning live equipment.
You will also cover theory relating to health & safety, industry regulations and best-practice.
At the end of the course, candidates will undertake a practical, observed assignment and an online/theory component.
On completion of this course, you will receive an LCL Awards Level 3 Certificate, which is recognised by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
This course is aimed at practising electricians, electrical technicians, and engineers with experience of electrical installations and associated inspection and testing.
Applicants should be working in the electrical industry and should hold as a minimum:
If the candidate does not hold a Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations , they must hold one of the following:
Candidates will require an up-to-date copy of the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, which can be provided at cost price (£70) at the time of booking with GTEC.
In addition to the above, candidates will need to bring the following books:
