This qualification will replace the existing the existing qualification 2919 and we will be offering this from the start of August 2023.

Aimed at existing practising electricians:
The purpose of this qualification is to install domestic and small commercial electric vehicle charger units. The qualification centres around being able to know the key requirements relating to electric vehicle charging equipment, including types of equipment. It includes how to design an installation, inspect, test, commission and maintain installations.

During your study you will cover a range of knowledge and skills across areas including inspection & testing and handing over of electrical vehicle charging equipment. Candidates will be assessed by on-line multiple choice test and a practical assignment.

This 2 day course provides expert guidance on EV charging equipment installation, an important emerging area which is not covered in detail by the current edition of the Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) or the IET’s Guidance Notes.

The qualification includes additional methods of protecting against open PEN conductor faults and how to assess if an installation has an issue with diverted neutral current. It also includes smart functions in EVSE and relevant items within the
installation as a whole. Integration into prosumer’s electrical installations including the option of electric vehicles reverse feeding into the installation and/or supply grid.

Topics Include:

  • Statutory and non-statutory documents for selection, installation and commissioning of EVC equipment.
  • Traffic Management Orders situation identification
  • Suitability of different modes of charging equipment and connections
  • Design an installation, including assessment of location, and methods for selecting suitable cable
  • System earthing and supply arrangements
  • Risks associated with installations, including PEN/CNE conductor faults, electric shock
  • Requirements for inspection, testing, commissioning and handover of EVC equipment and circuits
  • Electrical energy storage systems

Why take this EV charging course?

The UK is aiming to become net-zero by 2050. The transport sector is one of the UK’s largest emitters of CO2 and a major source of air pollution in cities. Decarbonizing transport is, therefore essential if the UK is to meet its goal of net zero emissions by 2050, one of the primary drivers enabling this strategy is through the Electric Vehicles. Sales globally for Electric vehicles have significantly increased over the last 3 years.

The result of more electric cars on the road requires an infrastructure in place for car users to charge their vehicles at their convenience. This qualification has been designed by industry and is aimed at practicing electricians wishing to upskill, to safely install and maintain Electric Vehicle charging posts. On completion learners will have the knowledge and understanding around topics such as energy storage systems and system earthing and supply arrangements.

We have a variety of charging units and simulated installs which means it is just like working on a real installation, making this installers course real value for money.
