2-DAY COURSE: CHARGE POINT OPERATIONS

The Charge Point OPERATIONS course is a two-day deep-dive created for those seeking a detailed knowledge of charge point operations and management.

 

Background

The Charge Point OPERATIONS is a two-day training course designed to empower delegates with a detailed, in-depth knowledge of charge point operations and management in the UK and Europe. Delegates will learn about charge point hardware, software, communications systems, payments, and trends to a level of detail where they will be able to begin managing charging infrastructure.

For those with limited previous knowledge of the EV charging market, we recommend taking the Charge Point ECOSYSTEM course prior to this course.

Charge Point OPERATIONS is relevant for both the public and private EV charging markets.

The course will be delivered Charlie O’Donoghue at EV Technology and has been developed in partnership with the REA.

 

Course details

This course will run over two days. Each day will start at 9:30am and run to 5:00pm GMT.

Delegates will attend online via GoToMeeting.

Prior to the course taking place delegates will be sent login details to a bespoke training website. Delegates will retain access to the website and contents for six weeks following the date of course delivery, and can purchase a six-month extension.

The Supplementary Materials section of the online materials contains an extensive glossary of terms which can be referred to post-event.

Following this course, delegates will have a robust knowledge of market actors, relationships between market participants, and charge point components and operations.
