The GSES Electrical Basics examination is designed for engineers in the renewable energy industry intending to gain Clean Energy Council GC or SPS Design accreditation.

The exam is to test your skills and abilities on basic principles of electricity and electrical components to demonstrate you have the required level of electrical knowledge to be a CEC accredited designer.

Prerequisites: An engineering degree is the current prerequisite for attempting the electrical basics examination. You will be asked for a copy of your academic transcript upon enrolment. It is expected that only engineers who have previously completed a subject in basic electrical principles will achieve the pass mark.

Terms: The examination fee includes two attempts at the examination, which can be started at any time up to one month after purchase. Access to the examination will expire after 30 days. After an attempt is started, it must be completed within 24 hours. There are 50 questions, and a minimum score of 45/50 (90%) must be achieved to successfully pass. If the pass mark is not achieved after the second attempt, the candidate will not be able to re-attempt the examination for 6 months and will be required to repurchase the examination.

Outcome of successful completion: Certificate of completion and eligible to apply for CEC accreditation following the completion of a CEC-accredited GSES course (e.g. Grid-Connected PV Systems Design Only). This certificate must be submitted in conjunction with the certificate of completion for the GSES course when applying for CEC provisional accreditation.
