Electrical Products Education Course (EPEC) Program

The Electrical Products Education Course, known as EPEC, has been a mainstay of electrical industry training for more than two decades. Successful completion of EPEC represents a standard of professional competence.

This self-study course, designed and administered by the National Association of Electrical Distributors, covers the vast array of products stocked and sold by electrical distributors. French Gerleman is a strong supporter of the program because EPEC greatly increases our associates' knowledge and ability to provide quick, accurate comprehensive product solutions for our customers.

The three-tiered course incorporates product knowledge for sales associates with real-world project applications. Students can work through Bronze, Silver or Gold levels of training. Independent reviewers evaluate students' work. Completion is based on demonstrated mastery of course content. It typically takes three years to complete this program. Successfully passing all three levels of the course is considered to be equivalent to about 10 years of industry experience.

Manufacturers' Training Gives Product Knowledge Advantage

Our associates receive frequent on site manufacturer training on site, online curriculum, and at our manufacturers' schools. Local "lunch and learn" programs are held at French Gerleman locations. Manufacturers' representatives train on new and changing products in an informal setting. Those training sessions are often open to customers as well. Our associates also have access to hundreds of online courses from manufacturers through French Gerleman and regularly attend manufacturers' schools where they learn the intricacies of a supplier's product line.

Associates are encouraged to participate in manufacturers' product training opportunities at French Gerleman locations, online, and at manufacturers' sites.
