Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS) (PV Battery Storage)

Assessment Information


BPEC has developed this course in conjunction with MCS. The course is specifically aimed at existing practicing electricians, electrical technicians, and engineers with experience of electrical installations, and associated inspection and testing and giving them the necessary training to upskill their existing skills to install EESS.


Trainees should hold a formal craft qualification e.g.

N/SVQ Level 3 in Electrical Installation (Buildings and Structures) and BS 7671: 2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations (18th Edition) qualification.


Equivalent historical qualifications (as found in EAS Table 4B/4C) Electrotechnical Assessment Specification Guide August 2023


ECS Gold Card, JIB Electrician or Approved Electrician Card

Stand-alone technical certificates/vocationally related qualifications (VRQ) (non-competency based) are NOT acceptable


Further Information

The course material has been designed to meet the requirements of dedicated electrical energy storage systems (EESS) in accordance with the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems and the MCS Battery Standard MIS 3012.

The installation of these EESS is work that can be carried out by competent, qualified operatives holding appropriate pre-requisite qualifications and the aim of the training course is to ensure individuals have the knowledge and required skills to carry out this work

Useful Information

Assessments consist of a combination of practical and theory examinations.

The programme is structured to be completed in: 2 days

However, and where possible, it is advised that candidates have access to the training manuals prior to attending the courses.
