Why Should You Our Consider EVSE Installation Course?

The electrification of the transport sector has begun in earnest and is expected to occur rapidly over the next decade. Many of the barriers to EV adoption that existed in the past have been solved. Range per charge is now similar to conventional ICE vehicles and the price of EVs is decreasing. This coupled with relatively cheap fuel (electricity) and lower maintenance costs, the lifetime cost of EVs will soon be lower then for ICE vehicles. This is leading to a major demand for increased charging capacity and certified installers to meet that demand.

Our EVSE installation course aims to give the basic knowledge about Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment from the types of plugs and charging equipment that are becoming the standard options in North America. We will also consider proprietary options, such as Tesla, and how they differ from the standard options. Once familiar with the EVSE options, the management systems and different configurations available can be considered. There is a wide variety of EVSE configurations that are common throughout North America and more are being developed.

Throughout the course our goal is to focus on the products that installers will encounter in the EVSE industry and what is required of the installer in the electrical code. Our streamlined approach will ensure you have the knowledge that is required, along with the references for more information if required, without requiring extra course hours. Every step, from design to commissioning the system is guided by the Canadian Electrical Code and will be discussed in the course materials. This includes detailed examples for the various types of buildings (which have different requirements) and the different EVSE and Energy Management Systems. See the list below for a detailed list of topics below.

Topics Covered During Our EVSE Installation Course

  • EVSE Technology - How does it work and what is required?
  • EVSE Types/Levels
  • EVSE Plugs
  • Electric Vehicle Energy Management Systems - Types and Functions (including Communications)
  • Electric Vehicle Energy Management Systems - Layouts
  • Service Loading - Single Dwellings (New constructions)
