Mersen Electrical Power is announcing the launch of a new on line E-Learning portal titled “Mersen Knowledge Center- Electrical Power.”

Mersen Knowledge Center – Electrical Power is Mersen Electrical Power North America’s new official online self-registering E-learning portal for electrical distributors, engineers, and end users. Visitors to the portal will find a broad library of 22 different training modules in video presentation format to choose from. The modules introduce students to basics of electricity, fuses and surge protection products and provide an overview of how these products are applied in various applications.

The training modules are typically ten minutes or less video presentations and contain a short quiz at the end of each module. Upon the successful completion of the each training module quiz, students have the option of printing out their Certificate of Completion for their keeping.

Mersen Knowledge Center link will be available on in US and Canada, replacing the existing training modules listing. The link is available on Mersen EP page: .

Mersen Knowledge Center training modules are externally shared amongst many of well-known North American electrical distributor groups such as Affiliated Distributors (AD), IMARK, Rexel, Sonepar, Turtle & Hughes, ALCAL and NAED. In addition, any Mersen authorized distributor or representative can incorporate the Mersen Knowledge Center Portal link into their own website as part of their line card’s training source.

Please note that moving forward, all visitors to Mersen Knowledge Center, (either directly on website or through a distributor university portal) MUST be self-registered in order to access the modules. This registration method will provide Mersen a better tracking capability of users’ enrollments and completions, a feature that was only available in IMARK University on the past.

Benefits of Mersen Knowledge Center are listed below:

  • Mersen Knowledge Center sets the foundation for a cleaner and more professional looking platform for Mersen training needs moving forward, for both internal and external users
  • As all visitors to MKC need to register, Mersen Knowledge Center provides Mersen a much improved visibility and traceability as to who is taking the training modules online
  • Mersen Knowledge Center opens up the Mersen’s content to many new distributor groups within North America (5x more visitors expected)
  • Creates a secondary platform of communication for specific news and releases, reaching out to electrical distributors contractors, electricians and consultants
