GTEC launches first Level 3 Battery Storage Training Course in the UK.

Authored by Sam on May 26, 2021


The course offers electricians and renewable installers the chance to upskill to install Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS).  GTEC is one of the first providers in the UK to provide training in this promising technology, which could make great contribution to the low-carbon future.  

Research and development in recent years means that battery storage technology has greatly improved leading to wider use in domestic settings.  The new course is designed to cater for this growing market, providing experienced installers with a RQF Level 3 qualification in the Design, Installation and Commissioning of Electrical Energy Storage Systems from LCL Awards. 

The training course covers all the essential requirements for the installation of EESS, including identification of equipment, arrangements and operating modes, design, installation, initial verification and handover, in conjunction with the latest IET Code of Practice. 

We are excited to be one of the first training centres to deliver training in battery storage.  We believe this emerging technology will have a wide-reaching impact as we head towards net zero 2050 – from building resilience and stability in the electricity grid to allowing homeowners to become more self-sufficient.  

Griff Thomas, GTEC MD

“With solar panels on the roof, an electric vehicle on the drive and a battery storage system in place, consumers can maximise their ‘self-consumption’, make savings on their energy bills and contributing to a low-carbon society.  While this may seem an idealistic vision to some, it is a case of ‘when’ not ‘if’.  

“Electricians and those with experience of renewable energy installations have great potential to meet growing demand for battery storage. This new training course is an ideal upskill for experienced installers who want to tap into this emerging market.”

GTEC’s battery storage training course is aimed at practicing electricians, electrical technicians and engineers who hold a formal Level 3 electrical qualification and current BS7671 and is recognised by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

The training and assessment takes two days and is delivered from GTEC’s Yorkshire based training centre. For companies with eight or more candidates, GTEC can provide onsite training to suit the specific needs of a business.
