Delivered at one of PMV’s national training centres (Perth, Karratha), or at a client’s facility.

This solar grid connect PV course is designed for electricians who already hold an electrician’s qualification, and wish to further their skills by gaining a qualification to design and install grid-connected photovoltaic systems.

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 and Engineers who have been practicing in the PV Solar energy industry for over 30 years. The solar grid connect PV course covers the following topics:

  • Design grid connected power supply systems and select compatible components
  • Shading Analysis (Path Finder and Sun path diagram)
  • Install systems on different types of roofs
  • Installation of rails, modules and DC Isolator (de-energized) and finer points of installation
  • Demonstration of pre commissioning tests (Short circuit test, Insulation resistance test etc.)
  • Commissioning and Decommissioning a system
  • Fault-finding on a system

There is a written design project on the completion of face-to-face delivery and assessment

Blended delivery of 50% theory and 50% practical training in a range of activities and PV system components that you are likely to see in a typical domestic grid connected PV System.

  • Intensive hands-on installation, fault finding and commissioning experience
  • Quality time with PMV trainers to review the theory and discuss feedback on theory assessment
  • Practical exercises as part of the competency based training outcome.
