Emagister adds to its catalogue the Electric Vehicle Charging Course, which is an introduction of Electric Vehicles and the Government announcement of its intention to scrap petrol or diesel engines has seen a surge in the sale of electric vehicles.

To enable these vehicles to continue to run, a large infrastructure of electric vehicle charging points is required in the home, in the place of work and in the high street.

This City 7 Guilds Qualification covers the installation of charging points within these environments, discusses the requirements of Section 722 of BS7671 and looks at the government incentives to enable the sale and running of electric vehicles.

This qualification is recognised by HM Office of Low Emission Vehicles as acceptable for enrolment on the Government Homecharge Grant Scheme. The installer must also be independently registered as an installer with an EV equipment manufacturer
