This Solar Battery Design course is made for electricians and engineers who want to learn how to design battery storage systems for solar Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems. This course does not include installing battery storage systems for grid connected solar PV systems.


After successful completion of this course you will be able to apply for accreditation with the Clean Energy Council of Australia.


This course is made for people who require a fast-paced and flexible learning environment while getting top quality training.

This Solar Battery Design course involves the skills and knowledge required to design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems.

There is no funding currently available for this course.

On average 30 hours of home study online, depending on the student's abilities, experience and intellect. Some take longer, some do it quicker.

Ongoing. Book your course and start online at anytime. This is a self-paced course. 

Online theory and practicals completed at the student's own pace.


This is a competency-based training and not an attendance-based training, you can make your own schedule and learn at your own pace.

In this course you will learn :



  • Batteries features, hazards and procedures
  • Battery storage energy demand
  • Battery storage systems for grid-connected PV systems electrical energy supply
  • Inverters comprising, photovoltaic grid-connected inverters and multimode inverters
  • Charge controllers
  • Diagrams
  • Energy management strategies and/or energy source switching options to reduce the maximum and surge demand, based on load profile analysis
  • Maintenance and installation requirements
  • System design

In order to enrol in this Solar Battery Design course you will require :

  • A valid ID (eg. Drivers Licence)
  • Basic Computer Literacy
  • Competency in the following units :

    UEERE0022: Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus
    UEERE0011: Design grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems

    These 2 units are covered in our Solar Design course.

You will need to get access to the following standards :

  • AS/NZS 5139 – Electrical installations – Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment
  • AS/NZS 4777.1 – Grid connection of energy systems via inverters – Part 1: Installation requirements
  • AS/NZS 5033 – Installation and safety requirements for photovoltaic (PV) arrays

You can borrow them from our library in Darwin while you are in class or buy them for yourself from the SAI Global website or Techstreet website. For reference, the standards might also be available from some libraries, institutions and industry associations. 


You will need :

  • A wired headset or headphones
  • A laptop
  • A notepad
  • A pen

You will also need to have an email address and a reliable internet connection in order to complete the course online.

If you decide to come to class, enclosed footwear must be worn at all times when you are on the premises.

Ausinet will issue your statement of attainment within 7 days of completion of the course. 

After you have successfully completed this course, you will be able to apply for your solar accreditation at the Clean Energy Council of Australia (CEC). You must hold grid-connect solar accreditation before you can apply for battery storage accreditation. You can find more information about the cec accreditation application process, requirements and fees on the Clean Energy Council website.

"Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.

"Recognition of prior learning also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person's current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired.


This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are considering doing study. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.


The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. Please contact the office for an RPL kit."

Possible job titles and roles relevant to this Solar Battery Design course include:

  • Solar battery technician
  • Solar battery designer
