WHY EARN THE EV CHARING POINT AWARD?

As the UK moves toward a greener future, there is a real push for drivers to choose electric vehicles. As a result, there is a growing demand for EV installers.

As of May 2021, nearly 300,000 pure-electric cards were on UK roads. That number doubles if including plug-in hybrid models. (Source: Next Green Car).

These cars need an electric vehicle charge point. However, there aren’t enough installers to keep up with the demand. This sizeable market will only increase as petrol and diesel fuel prices continue to rise, electric vehicles become more affordable, and technology develops. Upskilling and earning your EV Charging Point Award will put you ahead of the competition and prove lucrative as the industry grows.

The EV (Electric Vehicle) Charging Point Installer course is £350, including VAT.

Option Skills - BirminghamI’m not usually a person who will write feedback on Google, but I am someone who will give credit where credit is due.I found myself in a position where I had been made redundant, and id had a conversation with someone who’d decided to go on a gas course and do this through Option Skills. After speaking with the individual, I decided that id give this a go myself to give myself a trade.I can honestly say that it is better than anything that id ever expected. Iv always been someone who had worked in finance, so doing this was new to me and I was a bit apprehensive with how it would go.I have nothing but praise to the employees at Option Skills, and I feel that they are a credit to the company.Andrew, Leanne and Shaun have been the people taking the training sessions, and what incredible people they are.They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in every way possible with an extra desire to wanting to see you achieve.I have done the course for 8 weeks, and the knowledge I have picked up already is immense.If you are someone looking to get into the gas trade, I would highly recommend Option Skills as you will not be disappointed.Carl Evans

Although this course is intense and you will find yourself picking up a lot of information in a short space of time, Options Skills are the best way to get into the trades if you are a fast learner and are willing to work hard. The trainers are excellent (John, Steve, Thomas) and they will help you wherever they can, however be prepared to put in the work yourself in the evenings and weekends to revise and pass exams. Josh and James from the recruitment team were a joy to work with, they work tirelessly to find us all placements to start working in the industry while you complete the portfolio part of the course. I just finished the Electrical 6 week course and the lads found me a job in Birmingham city centre. With a number of exams left to do and portfolio to complete after you finish the 6 weeks in-centre, you can expect the total time to reach being qualified to be around 1-2 years.

Thank you to everybody at option skills and keep up the good work!!!

EV CHARING POINT INSTALLER AWARD FAQs

Frequently asked questions about our EV Charging Point Award.

To be eligible for the EV Charging Point Award course, you must hold up-to-date wiring regulations and initial certification and commissioning. You can demonstrate this through having relevant qualifications in BS 7671 (18th Edition Wiring Regulations) and inspection and testing.

As more people choose electric cars over petrol or diesel-powered ones, the demand for charging points increases. As a result, electricians and installers are needed to meet the demand.

Charging at home will become a common sight, but more electric vehicle charging points will also be needed in car parks, fuel stations, workplaces, and town centres.  

This award will provide you with an understanding of the application of the IET Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installation. It provides a facility for individuals working in the electrotechnical sector to develop their understanding of the installation of electric vehicles (EV).

Training takes place over two days.
