Where can I study?


Intake dates

Course Duration

4 – 5 Days

  • To provide a pathway for electricians to be Accredited to Clean Energy Council for battery storage systems for grid-connected PV system design and Installation.
  • To design, install, configure, test and commission battery storage grid connected power supply systems
  • UEERE4001 Install, maintain and fault and battery storage systems for gridconnected photovoltaic systems
  • UEERE5001 Design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems

This competency-based training program is delivered and assessed by

  • face-to-face or remote option available for theoretical content; and
  • hands on practical experience for installation of two grid-connected PV battery storage install and fault nding: and
  • design task to be completed for grid-connected PV solar leads acid and lithium ion batteries options.

For installation practical task, you will be assigned to an accredited installer/designer who will supervise you to gain verication of your requisite practical work experience. Alternatively, you can submit your experience to be signed off and veried if you are already working in the industry.

PMV will provide a set of comprehensive notes, ongoing trainer support to complete design task following theory assessments.

Statement of Attainment provides competencies to undertake design, install, configure, test and commission battery storage systems for grid-connected PV system to AS/NZS 5033:2018 Installation of photovoltaic (PV) arrays and AS/NZS 5139:2019 Electrical Installation – Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment

After obtaining the Statement of Attainment, the student can apply to the Clean Energy Council of Australia for Battery Storage for Grid-Connect PV Systems Accreditation. The Clean Energy Council website indicates the information required to apply for Clean Energy Council Accreditation

  • 4 – 5 Days
  • $2,400

Delivered at one of PMV’s national training centre (Perth) or at a client’s facility

This course is designed for electricians who have an electrician’s qualification and wish to further improve their skills by gaining a qualification to design and install battery storage systems for grid-connected PV system.

To be awarded a Statement of Attainment, you must hold an electrical engineering qualification, or a current unrestricted electrical license issued by an Australian state or territory OR refer to the CEC for units which need to be completed in lieu of a license:

You will undergo theory and hands-on practical training with qualified professional Electricians who have been practicing in the battery storage for gridconnected PV systems industry for over 20 years. The battery storage systems for grid-connected PV systems course covers the following topics:

  • Grid-Connected PV Systems Components Safety
  • Selecting and Sizing the Specied Loads
  • Assessing the Switchboard
  • Congurations of PV Grid-Connect System with Battery Storage
  • Permitted Battery and Grid Interaction and offsetting Peak Load
  • Battery Basics and Working with Batteries
  • Secondary Battery Technologies
  • Selecting and Sizing the Battery Storage and PV Array Sizing
  • System Drivers and System Constraints
  • Solar Controller and Selecting, Sizing and Programming Inverters
  • Balance of System Design
  • Wiring standards, Cable Sizing, Circuit Protection
  • Sizing Main Battery Fuses and Battery Isolation and Selection

  • Documenting System Efficiency and Effect of Battery Storage
  • Documenting PV system Yield
  • Documenting System Installation, Maintenance and Trouble Shooting
  • Maintenance of Batteries, Inverter and PV Array
  • Design grid connected power supply systems and select compatible components

A written design project is to be completed on the completion of theory assessment

  • Blended delivery of 60% theory and 40% practical training what you are likely to see in a typical battery storage system for grid-connected PV system.
  • Face to Face or remote flexible delivery and assessments allows students understand and discuss the vital knowledge prior to participating in the practical component.
  • PMV trainers marks the assessments and provides feedback or additional technical information to the students.
  • Intensive hands-on installation, fault finding and regulatory requirements experience.
