Meet with us over video call
We’ll organise a short video call interview to assess if you are a right fit for the business and if revcharge is a right fit for you.
If the interview is successful, you will be required to submit compliance paperwork to validate your electrical contractor's license, and your public liability insurance. You’ll also be required to present us with your ABN and GST registration.
Once your electrical contractor's licence has been validated, you will be required to review each EV charger’s brand guides and supplementary material in preparation for any training we will provide to you free of charge.

Once all training is complete, you are officially part of our network and we will start providing you with installation jobs. You can be assured that any jobs provided will be within the serviceable area that you have specified.

Frequently asked questions
How can I become an EV charger installer?
If you are a licensed A-grade electrician (or soon-to-be), you’ve already taken the first step. This usually means completing an apprenticeship and completing an appropriate electrical course.
If you want to work for yourself and do contracting work for other companies, you’ll also need to obtain your Registered Electrical Contractor’s License. You’ll also need an ABN if you run your own business, or complete contracting work.
You’ll then upskill yourself in the actual installation work for electric vehicle charging, and learn how to commission them appropriately (including quality assurance and app/interface activation). Want to upskill yourself in EV charger installations? Join revcharge today!

What EV charger installation courses are available for electricians?
As electric cars become more and more popular, there is a greater need for training and upskilling in the installation of EV chargers. Electricians have a range of ways to upskill themselves, including:
Join the chargepoint manufacturers’ training programs (for example, Ocular, Wallbox etc): https://ocularcharging.com.au/ev-charger-installation-training/
Join Government funded EV charger installation courses, for example through the Electricians Trade Union: https://www.etuvic.com.au/
Join installation companies who provide training (such as revcharge), and we’ll assume that’s why you’re here! It’s tough to keep your knowledge up to date with the abundance of new chargers that are flooding onto the market. That’s why, whether you are an experienced installer or a first time installer, we provide all the training necessary for you to do your job properly, including how to use the interface and apps for any home charging instals. Our training is mostly conducted online via videos, guides, interactive quizzes and webinars. You’ll also have the opportunity to have further training through our partnerships with the charger manufacturers.
Do you provide the materials and tools for the installation jobs?
For consistency and quality assurance, we provide some materials such as isolators, RCBOs and switchboard labels. These will be sent to the customer alongside their charger, so you just need to turn up to their house and the materials will all be there. However, you will be required to provide other installation materials such as cabling, conduit, fixings etc. and your own tools.
How and when do I get paid?
Once you’ve completed an installation job, you’ll be required to fill in a quality checklist with photos and other information. Our team will review this within 1-2 business days. After that, payment will be made by bank transfer every Tuesday morning.
How much do I get paid?
Each job is quoted individually on its own merit by our in-house electrician. The amount you are offered for an installation will be calculated based on an hourly rate of $90 inc GST, plus the cost of materials you will be expected to use with a 15% markup on those, and superannuation for sole traders (those with ABNs).
