EV Charging Essentials


Online Short Course

No matter what your role is, being an EV charging station expert is a valuable skill that can help you navigate the accelerating uptake of EVs and charging infrastructure.

The accelerating adoption of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure is materially changing the way we use energy. As a high power application, it will impact how our grid provides us with electricity, how you use that energy and how you travel to places. A smooth transition from oil and gas requires us to learn new technical skills, terminology and other skills to integrate the high power application of charging infrastructure into our day-to-day operations/lives.

Join this course to gain the knowledge needed for success! In this short course, you will learn about the key elements of EV charging infrastructure, how to create a concept design for charging infrastructure, how to budget for EV charging infrastructure and much more!

The EV Charging Essentials is a 4 hours self-paced course with written and video based content. The course also has quizzes in each chapter to test your knowledge.

Course Outline:

  1. The key elements of EV charging infrastructure
  2. Developing a concept design for EV charging infrastructure
  3. Budgeting for EV charging infrastructure
  4. Operating and Maintaining EV charging infrastructure

The course is relevant for installers, engineers, project developers, homeowners, site managers and other non-technical people connected with the industry who would want to acquaint themselves with design, budgeting and operating and maintaining EV charging infrastructure.

NOTE: This course is worth 30 CPD points until the 31st of July 2024.
