Currently, on average, 600 chargers are added to the UK roads a month, with 100 of those being fast chargers. This charging infrastructure is responsible for serving around 750,000 plug-in vehicles.

The Government’s 2022 commitment to allocate £1.6 billion to further expand the UK’s charging network – with around 300,000 public chargers expected to be available by 2030 – means the industry needs competent installers.  The City & Guilds 2921-31 course has been designed to standardise practices for manufacturers, suppliers and installers. The course reflects the future requirements of this exciting new industry by helping to reduce the risk of unsafe and inefficient practices.
