This short course provides nationally accredited training for electricians in the design and installation of grid-connected PV systems.
Studying the Design and Install Grid Connect PV Systems at Holmesglen
The course is delivered by Holmesglen’s Renewable Energy Centre of Excellence - Australia’s premier facility for delivering nationally accredited training in solar energy. Designed to provide real-world hands-on simulated practical activities, our students get unrivalled training with access to premium equipment.
Successful completion meets the Clean Energy Council Accreditation pathway and will entitle licensed electricians to apply for Provisional Accreditation for Design and Install of Grid-connected PV systems.
This course blends online learning with practical face-to-face on-campus workshops.
Students are required to complete online study and attend a series of on-campus practical workshop sessions. The online study and on-campus sessions are delivered in parallel, by one course instructor.
The online component covers all the theoretical knowledge and assessment required for design and installation of grid-connected PV systems.
You will be provided with a course book, access to our online learning resources, and ongoing support with the course instructor.
You must successfully complete compulsory online coursework prior to attending a related practical workshop session.
The workshops will include a review of online content to ensure you obtain a thorough understanding of all design and theoretical knowledge, and cover all the practical requirements and assessment for the course, including installation of Grid-Connected PV systems. Attendance at the practical workshops is compulsory.
Workshops will be delivered in our purpose built Holmesglen Renewable Energy Training Centre of Excellence at our Moorabbin campus, built in partnership with State Government and industry.
