IET launches training course for EV charging installation

As part of the Government’s £37m subsidy for charging points for electric vehicles (EV), charge points will be required to be installed in accordance with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET)’s Code of Practice.

The IET has launched a new training course, developed with training provider Group Horizon. The course will include modules on understanding charging equipment, installation requirements, certification and fault finding.

Carolyn White, director of IET standards, said: “The Government’s recently announced subsidies shows a commitment to ensuring that the UK is a world leader in electric vehicles.

“As the industry expands, it is vital that benchmarks are introduced to enable those working in the installation of electric vehicle charging equipment to meet accepted standards.

“The IET’s Code of Practice was launched in 2012 and has become widely recognised by industry as the leading guide in the installation of electric vehicle charging equipment.  The time is now right to introduce this new course and qualification, which will set the standards for electric vehicle installation.”

25/10/2017Take a moment to celebrate
