Throughout 2019, Trade Skills 4U are hosting a range of free Electric Vehicle (EV) Installer Seminars. They will be aimed at both existing installers and new entrants to the industry.
The seminars are one hour long and will be run in the evening from Trade Skill 4U’s four main training facilities in Gatwick, Warrington, Leeds and Coventry.
Two dates are currently live with more dates to follow shortly. If you would like to register for these free seminars, visit: www.tradeskills4u.co.uk/pages/events.
They are designed to explain the opportunities available for becoming an EV car charging point installer, covering helpful topics including:
- How funding for EV charging point installation works.
- How to get registered in order to draw down funding.
- How to maximise the EV funding opportunity for installers and their customers.
- The training required to be an EV Charging Point Installer.
Trade Skills 4U has created these seminars in conjunction with Rolec EV, a division of Rolec Services that specialises in the design and manufacture of a range of electric vehicle charging solutions.
As part of the partnership with Rolec, students who successfully pass an EV Installer course with us are automatically registered on the Approved Rolec Installer’s Scheme.
Their name will also appear on a national database enabling them to work on jobs in the local area.
Carl Bennett, Executive Chairman of Trade Skills 4U, commented: “Following a rise in demand for electric vehicle points across the country, the collaboration between both companies seemed like the perfect match to ensure that skilled electricians are ready to work in this growing sector.
“By combining experience in training and manufacturing, we have created seminars specifically designed to deliver an opportunity to our students.
“We believe the government’s initiative to eliminate all petrol and diesel cars by 2040 will mean the need for installing electrical vehicle points will increase significantly in the coming years.”
Managing Director of Rolec EV Kieron Alsop added: “The installation of EV Charging points represents a significant business opportunity for the electrical contracting industry.
“A recent survey undertaken by Emu Analytics confirmed that the UK is in need of a six fold increase in EV charging point deployment over the next two or three years to cope with the charging demands from the dramatically increasing numbers of Electric Vehicles being registered.
“As a result of this new business opportunity, Rolec EV is delighted to be working closely with, and supporting, Trade Skills 4U in developing a range of electrical contractor charge point installation training courses at a number of their sites throughout the UK.”
