Currently, on average, 600 chargers are added to the UK roads a month, with 100 of those being fast chargers. This charging infrastructure is responsible for serving around 750,000 plug-in vehicles.

The government’s 2022 commitment to allocate £1.6billion to further expand the UK’s charging network – with about 300,000 public chargers expected to be available by 2030 – means the industry needs competent installers. The EAL Level 3 Award in Requirements for the Installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Points course has been designed to standardise practices for manufacturers, suppliers and installers. The course reflects the future requirements of this exciting new industry by helping to reduce the risk of unsafe and inefficient practices.

This Electric Vehicle (EV) charging qualification is designed to give a fundamental understanding of the design, installation, testing, inspection, commission and maintenance of single electric vehicle charging equipment in both domestic and commercial settings.
