Studying the Course in New Energy Technology Systems at Holmesglen
Holmesglen is part of a pilot program to roll out this new course, which incorporates a range of new course resources including short videos to support your training to help you retain and understand the information and see it applied in the appropriate context.
This is a nationally accredited qualification developed by industry in response to the upcoming demand for residential solar battery installations by consumers. The course is restricted to licensed electricians and places are limited.
After the course, you can continue to have access to information and updates so you stay up to date with on-going changes in the New Energy storage sector.
The pilot program combines theory and practical training and assessment. Learners will be required to attend 5-days of on-campus face-to-face practical workshops and complete online coursework. The online study and on-campus training is delivered in parallel.
||Undertake site assessment for installation of a grid-connected renewable energy generation system
||Install, maintain and fault find battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems
||Design a grid-connected photovoltaic energy generation system to meet client requirements
||Design a grid-connected battery storage system to meet client requirements
Assessment is part of each unit and will include:
• direct observation of processes and procedures
• oral and written questioning
• inspection of final processes
• documented work-based evidence
• demonstration of practical skills.
