The EVI Training course is a UK Government-funded initiative designed for local authority officers involved in the planning, coordination and delivery of public electric vehicle infrastructure. 

This course is for local authorities only and is not open to the public. 

This comprehensive course delves into the crucial facets of electric vehicle infrastructure (EVI), equipping participants with indispensable insights and expertise essential for navigating the dynamic landscape of electric vehicle infrastructure. 

Across the ten weeks, learners will cover electric vehicles (EVs) and charging technology, stakeholders, strategy, procurement, deployment and operations, empowering participants to facilitate effective EV infrastructure rollout.

Participants will gain essential knowledge and skills for EVI deployment, fostering consistency and knowledge sharing across local authorities, ultimately supporting the transition to EV.

Learner Testimonial: 

The EVI Training course has been invaluable in improving my knowledge and confidence in EVI deployment. The course structure takes the learner through the whole process, from understanding the reasons why it’s needed, to planning, development and installation. The content has been engaging and interactive, and I’m already using what I have learnt on the course in my role at Suffolk County Council.
