EV Connect, a provider of electric vehicle infrastructure solutions, announced a collaboration with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to create UL’s first global training program for the EV-installation industry. The program leverages EV Connect best practices, promotes sector efficiency and ultimately encourages the development of safely installed and maintained charging station infrastructure across all global markets.

Underwriters Laboratories created UL University to develop training programs on safety standards and regulatory compliance for individuals, businesses, industry inspectors and regulators. UL University has collaborated with EV Connect, leveraging EV Connect’s 15 years of experience in electric vehicle charging solutions to define best practices for certified electricians and trainers as they begin to prepare cities and towns across the nation for the demand for an electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Drawing on EV Connect’s industry experience in residential, commercial and municipal installations ensures that certified EV technicians will emulate its path of timely, cost-effective deployments.

“We recognize EV Connect’s extensive experience in the design and deployment of EV charging solutions and are confident their expertise will play a pivotal role in the successful rollout of infrastructure throughout the United States,” said Gary Savin, vice president and general manager for Global Power and Controls business at UL.

EV Connect plans to continue other EV training initiatives for municipal inspectors, electricians and original equipment manufacturers of electric vehicle infrastructure solutions.
