Solar Grid-Connect Training


In order for consumers to take advantage of Government incentives and rebates in solar power such as purchase/installation subsidies and feed-in-tariffs, the designer and installer must be accredited by the Clean Energy Council (CEC). For this reason there is high demand from electricians and other tradespeople for training that leads to CEC accreditation as a photovoltaic system designer/installer.

CEC accreditation requires the successful completion and assessment of the following units of competency:

* UEENEEK125A Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
* UEENEEK135A Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems
* UEENEEK148A Install, configure and commission LV grid connected photovoltaic power systems

If you have completed any of the above listed units within the past 10 years please advise us upon registering, and once you have provided proof of this, you may be eligible for an exemption from that unit.

To undertake these units, participants must be a fully qualified electrician or have completed all of the basic electrical prerequisites of the Certificate IV in Renewable Energy. This course covers the Design & Install aspects for Solar Grid Connect - unfortunately at this stage we are unable to offer the Design aspect only. 

Course structure includes face-to-face delivery at Swinburne’s Wantirna campus with additional study outside of class required using a workbook.

It is recommended that prior to enrolment prospective students visit the Clean Energy Council (CEC) website for the latest accreditation rulings.

Note: This course is not CRICOS registered and is unavailable to international students on a student visa.
