USA: IBEW members to install electric car charging stations

ST. LOUIS — Electrical Workers Local 1 and the St. Louis chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association have launched the first electrical car training program in Missouri, and one of the few in America.

The only program of its kind locally, it’s designed to train unionists in skills they need to install charging stations for the growing number of electric vehicles on the road. Local 1 and the St. Louis NECA chapter took the lead nationally by helping to develop a national curriculum for the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program.

The St. Louis training center (located at the union’s headquarters at 2300 Hampton Ave.), is operated by The Electrical Connection, a Local 1-NECA partnership. It is currently the only training center in St. Louis that offers EVITP certification for installers of electric vehicle supply equipment, such as fixed EV charging stations.

The St. Louis training program is another example of the new high-paying jobs that clean energy projects-pushed by organized labor and the Obama administration as one of the ways to revitalize U.S. manufacturing-can create.
