If you are a qualified, licensed electrician and you want to learn how to plan, configure and install photovoltaic systems safely to the power grid, then let Melbourne Polytechnic’s Grid Connect Install short course help you get ahead.

The course’s theory and practical components develop skills necessary for accreditation, and, as an installer, you will ensure your customers are able to claim the government rebate. This will allow customers to enjoy generating their own power and minimising their electricity consumption from the grid.

Topics include:

  • Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) principles
  • electrical safe working practice
  • photovoltaic power systems
  • grid connected inverters

At the end of the course participants will be able to connect renewable energy technologies to the power grid according to industry guidelines and approved safety standards.

On completion of the course, participants will receive a statement of attainment for the following nationally recognised units of competency:

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

Participants can then present their statement of attainment to the Clean Energy Council (formerly Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) to apply for accreditation.
