Those who are wishing to become competent EV Charging Installers.
Why should I take this course?
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular because of rising fuel prices and government targets to reduce the number of petrol and diesel vehicles on the road. Due to this, the demand for electric vehicle charging is also rising and at the moment there is a lack of competent engineers to meet the demand.
