Electrical training and certification program

Thursday, 17 January, 2013 | Supplied by: Schneider Electric


The EcoXpert training and certification program is designed to give medium-sized electrical contractors the necessary skills to become certified energy experts so they can develop new services and meet the changing energy needs of their customer base. The program helps contractors advise, sell and install a broad range of pre-engineered energy solutions across small to medium-sized commercial, industrial buildings and high-end residential applications.

The program is structured into three levels of certification: Level One is the EcoXpert Specialist. This incorporates a path where contractors train in specialist sectors that meet their individual requirements and skill set. Specialities can include expertise in electric vehicle charging stations, solar equipment for renewable energy, lighting management and home energy-efficiency improvement. Level Two, the EcoXpert Energy Adviser, provides a range of training which takes electrical contractors on the necessary steps to become certified EcoXpert Energy Advisors. Electrical contractors wanting to take a holistic approach to energy-efficiency solutions can join the EcoXpert program at this level. The third-level EcoXpert Advanced course is the building block to train electrical contractors in the automation and control aspect of energy management and efficiency.

The EcoXpert program trains contractors using a variety of techniques including e-learning, classroom-based training and one-on-one sessions. Once trained, licensed contractor companies will receive an EcoXpert certification for their business and will be responsible for passing on the relevant skills to additional employees across the company. Certified contractors are able to access the dedicated EcoXpert web portal, which gives them direct access to advice and guidance from Schneider Electric in a collaborative environment.
