Grid Connect Install for Qualified Electricians

Melbourne Polytechnic’s Grid Connect Install short course is designed to give qualified licensed electricians the skills and knowledge necessary to safely plan, configure and install alternative power sources to the power grid.

Course Code: SET058

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


Each student enrolled in nationally recognised training will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) to access all academic transcripts and qualifications. Melbourne Polytechnic cannot issue you with a Statement of Results, Statement of Attainment or qualification unless you provide your personal USI.
