Electrical Vehicle Charging
This course aims to provide expert guidance to delegates wishing to gain knowledge and understanding on Electric Vehicle charging equipment installation.
It is primarily aimed at practicing electricians who would like to further their skills and are interested in understanding how to install a range of EV equipment and the systems available. The course covers the specialised installation requirements of electric vehicle charging equipment in public, private, commercial and industrial locations, and includes exclusive guidance on electrical requirements.
Delegates will learn installation, inspection and testing and hand over requirements for electrical vehicle charging equipment. The course builds to a 3-hour practical assignment, split into four tasks:
Task A: Installation design (commercial/on-street) (30 minutes)
Task B: Carry out installation (1 hour)
Task C: Initial Verification of installation (inspection and testing) (1 hour)
Task D: Installation design (domestic) (30 minutes)
At the end of the course, delegates will also be required to complete an online multiple-choice assessment, consisting of 40 questions.
