We are proud to announce the launch of our first course in its new series of electric-vehicle (EV) courses. New facilities have been created to run the courses at CRCs Cambridge campus, with funding from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, which will be focused on the installation of EV charging points, with future courses to focus on EV maintenance.
Mo Horan, Director of Employer Engagement at CRC said “This new training course is for electricians to gain the skills they need to install electric vehicle charging points. With the increase in electric vehicles on the road and the change to building regulations requiring building developers to ensure electric-vehicle charging points are installed in new-build homes, workplaces, supermarkets and buildings undergoing major renovations, the speed at which EV charging points will be created across the region will increase, and that means we need our Cambridgeshire and Peterborough workforce upskilled to deliver.
“Our two-day courses will be running regularly throughout the year, the first starting 5th December, and companies looking to train groups of employees together can talk to us about group training options.”
Rob Metcalfe, Director of Curriculum at CRC said “Developing local skills to meet the changing needs of the economy, environment and local workforce is at the heart of what we do as a college in partnership with the CPCA. The next phase of the project will include further training options for motor vehicle maintenance training opportunities.”
CRC has wide ranging training and support opportunities. In addition to the courses offered directly through this project, candidates can access business start-up courses, should they wish to start their own business in this field. For those seeking employment, CRC offer adult career information advice and guidance to explore their steps into employment in this field.
Our first EV charging point installation course starts on the 5th December. The course takes 2 days and costs £370. The course, accredited by EAL, covers the technical requirements for the installation of EV Points and follows the entire IET Code of Practice and BS 7671. It provides a facility for individuals working in the electrotechnical sector to develop their understanding of these installations.
