This 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 (not Stand Alone Power systems)
This competency based training program is delivered face-to-face theory and practical content delivery with a comprehensive text book, ongoing tutor support and a practical design and installation task.
Blended delivery of theory and practical training with what you are likely to see in a typical industrial environment.
Face to face Theory Component
This course has been designed to address the PV grid-connect market in Australia and is ideal for electricians who wish to expand their knowledge and skills. The delivery mode of this course is designed for busy tradespeople.
Face to Face flexible delivery and assessments allows students understands and discuss the vital knowledge prior to participating in the practical component.
PMV tutors marks the assessments and provides feedback or additional technical information to the students.
Face-to-Face Day Practical Component
PMV offers a blended mix of face to face theory and practical, which provides:
- Intensive hands-on installation, fault finding and commissioning experience; and
- Quality time with PMV trainers to review the theory; and
- Practical exercises as part of the competency based training outcome.
4 day face-to-face, including practical.
|Core Competency Standard Units
A Statement of Attainment will be awarded for the following Units of Competency:
|UEENEEK125A||Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus||Training and experience|
|UEENEEK135A||Design grid connected power supply systems||Training and experience|
|UEENEEK148A||Install, configure and commission grid-connected power supply systems||Training and experience|
Statement of Attainment (SOA) – Design & Install Grid Connected Photovoltaic Systems
This Statement is issued to a student who has successfully completed one or more units of competency but does not meet the requirements for a full qualification (as specified in the training package) and to Graduate Electrical Engineers.
Electricians who successfully complete the online and practical components can then apply to the Clean Energy Council of Australia for the Design & Installation of Grid-Connect PV Systems Accreditation. The Clean Energy Council has information on their website indicating their information requirements to apply for Clean Energy Council Accreditation.
Outcome: Statement of Attainment and Eligible to Apply for Provisional Accreditation
On completion of the 4-day practical course, students will have the knowledge and skills to safely work on roofs and competently install a grid connect PV system.
To be awarded a Statement of Attainment, you must hold 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:
Electrical apprentices may enrol in this course, however they will need to show they have completed the above units in their studies already OR wait till they are issued their unrestricted license before being awards a Statement of Attainment.
Students will need to have access to the AS/NZS 5033:2014 standard to successfully complete this course (and for work in the field). This can be purchased from the SAI Global website and is available at some local libraries.
