Develop Training, one of the UK’s leading accredited providers of compliance, technical and safety training, continues to raise awareness of the need for qualified electric vehicle (EV) charging installers in order to tackle the UK’s demand for EV charging infrastructure.

EVs are a significant part of the growing necessity for greener technologies, and with the UK ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030, electric vehicles, and the technologies required to charge them, will be essential for day-to-day transport. Develop Training now offers the resources needed for upskilling practicing electricians, providing the training that will allow them to competently carry out the EV charging installation process.

The comprehensive course developed by the learning provider is the Level 3 Award in Domestic, Commercial and Industrial Electric Vehicle Charging Installation. This City & Guild accredited two-day course enables practising electricians to qualify as EV charging equipment installers, and covers legislation, design, selection and commissioning of the final installation.

Stuart Gilby, operational training manager at Develop Training, said: “Here at Develop Training, we recognise that EV charging installation is a skill that is rapidly becoming a priority within the construction industry as part of the push towards a net-zero future.

“The benefits of qualifying as an installer, for both the workforce and the employer, cannot be downplayed. For the learner, there is the chance to gain vital skills and knowledge, which will allow them to safely install EV charging points in line with current industry guidelines. In supporting their workers to undertake the training, employers will be able to gain a share of a rapidly growing market, future-proofing both theirs and their employees’ earning potential.”
