Overview

The Solar Grid Connect - Design and Install TNABL short course is designed for electricians and electrical engineers who want to gain skills in the design and installation of grid-connected PV systems.

This course provides licensed electricians with the skills to understand energy audits, design, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain grid connected photovoltaic systems and the associated equipment. It allows successful students to gain provisional accreditation with the Clean Energy Council, which may lead to full accreditation in Grid Connect Design or Grid Connect Install.

You will develop technical skills and knowledge that will ensure you are ready for work, including:

  • preparing to work on photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
  • solving problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
  • completing work and documenting problem solving activities
  • preparing to design grid connected power supply systems
  • developing grid connected power supply systems design
  • obtaining approval for grid connected power supply systems design
  • preparing to install photovoltaic power systems
  • installing photovoltaic power systems, and
  • completing and reporting on installation activities.
