Why Electricians Need EV Training
Sales of Electric Vehicles (EV) are growing by 20% every month. As well as a thriving market for new cars, used car sales are also growing.
This means EV charge points at homes and workplaces are in high demand.
As an Electrician, you should be benefitting from the Government grant for installing EV charge points both domestically and commercially. This is known as the ‘OLEV Grant’.

How do I get onto the OLEV Register?
1. Firstly, you must be a qualified Electrician with 18th Edition BS 7671.
2. Secondly, you must have the Electric Vehicle Charging 2919 Certificate (which Universal Skills Group deliver nationally).
3. Thirdly, you need to be approved by an EV charge point manufacturer. Universal Skills Group are proud to partner with Rolec, the UK’s leading EV charge point manufacturer.
Once you have all of these requirements, you then apply to OLEV with the relevant documentation. Universal Skills can take the hassle out of this for you, as we offer this as an additional service.
