Electric vehicle sales are at an all-time high and with every major manufacturer offering a choice it’s hardly surprising many new car buyers have or will consider buying one. There are grants off the cost of up to £500 for EV purchasers to install charge point at home, or up to £10,000 for business, providing they are installed by a qualified installer.

To help you get involved, GRE Training has partnered with RolecEV to offer a one-day City & Guild 2919-01 accredited electric vehicle charging course that is designed for qualified electricians who want to learn about the technical requirements and practical considerations when installing charging points for electric vehicles.
