2921-31 – Design & Installation of Domestic & Small Commercial Electric Vehicle Charging Installations


Course Overview

The new 2921-31 course is being launched in September 2022 and will introduce a heightened focus on EV charger installations and the related health and safety issues. This course will equip you with the skills to install domestic and small commercial electric vehicle charger units, providing you with the information needed to successfully design an EV charger installation, as well as how to inspect, test, commission, and maintain installations.

If you are an experienced electrician or installer, this course is an opportunity to enhance your skill set, enabling you to enter the world of electric vehicle charging.

Course Content

This course is intended for practicing electricians and as part of the assessment for this qualification, learners must hold one of the following:

      • 2357 Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment (Buildings, Structures and the Environment)
      • 2357 Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Electrotechnical Services (Electrical Maintenance)
      • 5357 Level 3 Electrotechnical qualification
      • 2356 Level 3 NVQ in Electrotechnical Services Experienced Worker
      • 2346 Level 3 Electrotechnical Experienced Worker Qualification
      • Other Awarding Organisations equivalences will also be acceptable
      • Equivalent historical qualifications (see EAS Table 4B/4C) EAS Qualifications guide December 2020 (theiet.org)
      • ECS Gold Card, JIB Electrician or Approved Electrician Card


The qualifications above must have been achieved no more than 5 years prior to starting this qualification or there must be evidence the candidate has remained current by completing relevant CPD such as a City and Guilds 2382 or equivalent.

The course content for the new 2921-31 course will change, and will now focus on EV charger installations and the related health and safety issues. It will also acknowledge that candidates will already either be electricians or electrical engineers with completed knowledge and experience with the latest wiring regulations, electrical installations, and inspection and testing processes.

The new course content is included below:

  • Statutory and non-statutory documents for selection, installation, and commissioning of EVC equipment.
  • Traffic Management Orders situation identification
  • Suitability of different modes of charging equipment and connections
  • Design an installation, including assessment of location, and methods for selecting suitable cable
  • System earthing and supply arrangements
  • Risks associated with installations, including PEN/CNE conductor faults, electric shock
  • Requirements for inspection, testing, commissioning, and handover of EVC equipment and circuits
  • Electrical energy storage systems

From the 1st of September, learners will need to complete an online multiple-choice exam, the same as for the current qualifications. However, with the new course, there will be no practical assessment. Instead, this will be replaced by an assignment comprised of short-answer and scenario-based questions, designed to test the practical requirements.

You will also be able to take your Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installation (IET Standards) – ISBN 978-1839531804 book into the exam for reference.

You can order a book via our team, provided it is two weeks prior to your test date.

This 2-day course is  £365.00 + VAT. The price also includes all exam fees and the printed certification.
