Further Course Details:
Britain has seen a sharp increase in the use of electric or hybrid vehicles over recent years. It is widely anticipated that this use of electric vehicles will increase further still in the next few years, particularly as performance and capacity of batteries continues to improve. In order to meet the charging needs for these vehicles, we have seen a sharp increase in the installation of charging points, both in commercial premises and domestic dwellings.

It is therefore the perfect opportunity for electrical contractors to expand their business and offer additional 'specialist' service and installation of charging sockets to their clients.

The next amendment to BS 7671, The IET Wiring Regulations, is likely to include requirements for the supply of charging socket outlets for electric vehicles. Also the IET have recently published a Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installation.

The course will cover topics including:

  • An overview of electrical vehicle charging equipment

  • Arrangements prior to installation commencement

  • Physical installation requirements for general, domestic, on-street, commercial and industrial installations

  • Inspection, testing and maintenance requirements

  • DNO notification
