We are excited to announce we are hosting a range of free electric vehicle installer seminars. Throughout 2019 these seminars will be aimed at both existing installers and new entrants to the industry.
The seminars will be run 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. The seminars, entitled Electric Vehicle Installers Seminar: What’s the big deal? have been designed to explain the opportunities available for becoming an Electric Vehicle Charging Point Installer and will cover relevant and helpful topics such as:
- 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 you and your customers
- How to train to be an EV Charging Point Installer
Free tea, coffee and biscuits will be available on the night and a Rolec and Trade Skills 4U welcome pack will be handed out to all attendees.
When and where?
These 1 hour seminars are being planned to run throughout the year from our 4 main training centres in Gatwick, Warrington, Leeds and our new Coventry centre. The first is being held at our Gatwick centre on the 17th April 2019. More dates and venues are planned to follow shortly, so watch this space!
Carl Bennett Executive Chairman of Trade Skills 4U said: “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 rise significantly in the coming years.”
Kieron Alsop, Rolec EV’s Managing Director commented: “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 2 or 3 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.”
“The recently opened Rolec EV Training Suite at their flag ship training centre in Leeds highlights the scale of investment and confidence both Rolec and Trade Skills 4U have in this new EV Charging industry.”
