The Grid Connected PV with Battery Storage course provides nationally accredited training for electricians in the installation of grid connected PV battery storage systems.
Studying the Grid Connected PV with Battery Storage at Holmesglen
The 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.
Training is delivered at Holmesglen’s Renewable Energy Centre of Excellence, Australia’s premier facility for delivering nationally accredited training in solar energy. A $2.1 million upgrade, fully funded by the Victorian Government, to our renewable energy training facilities has just been completed and includes the installation of new solar panels and electric vehicle charging stations at the Moorabbin campus. This gives learners hands-on experience using premium equipment and technologies and experience with commercial systems, and provides Holmesglen with the capacity to train workers for Victoria’s clean energy future.
The online component covers all the theoretical knowledge and assessment required for the 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 complete compulsory online coursework before 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 battery storage systems.
Attendance at the practical workshops is compulsory.
