Preparing the Workforce for EV Charging: Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP) Factsheet

With the creation of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program in November 2021, the U.S. will soon have a comprehensive network of 500,000 chargers across the country. One of the provisions in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) requires that the electricians installing and maintaining the NEVI-funded system be certified through the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP) or a state-based equivalent continuing education (CE) credit.

This five-page document provides an overview of EVITP, assesses the workforce needs associated with the NEVI program, and offers suggestions for state-based alternative programs.
