This training course provides detailed guidance and recommendations on all aspects of the installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment from the origin of the electrical supply, through distribution and final circuits, installation of the charging equipment itself to the cable between the charging equipment and vehicle’s electrical inlet. Also included are related issues of site layout and planning and subsequent inspection, testing, certification and maintenance of installations.

Plus much more

Why take this EV charging course?

Currently there is an increasing demand for new electric vehicle charging points but too few installers to roll them out. This is already a booming market which is due to get much bigger in the near future. The number of public charging connectors and locations has increased by 38% in the past 12 months and is expected to continue at that rate for years to come.

Add this important service to future proof your knowledge to allow extra inspection & testing plus new installation work with this electric vehicle charging course.

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