This Solar Battery Installation course is made for electricians who want to learn how to install battery storage systems for solar Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems. This course does not include designing 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 course is designed for Electricians working in the solar industry willing to install a full Battery system for a Grid Connected PV system to pass the practicals component of the course typically on your own home. This installation will be checked and form a case-study for your practical to AUSINET and CEC accreditation. For more information call 08 6244 2575 and request to speak with the Solar trainer

This Solar Battery Installation course involves the skills and knowledge required to safely and effectively install, maintain and fault find 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. For the practicals you will need to provide evidence of you installing a full Battery system on a Grid Connected PV System.


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 :


  • Battery storage systems for grid-connected PV systems
  • Purpose of each component in battery storage systems for grid-connected PV systems
  • Functional block diagrams for typical configurations of battery storage systems for grid-connected PV system
  • Charge controllers
  • Grid-connected batteries
  • Battery types and features
  • Battery safety
  • Grid-connected inverters
  • Grid-connected storage systems fault finding
  • Grid-connected storage systems installations
  • Electrical drawings
  • Grid-connected storage systems maintenance procedures
  • Grid-connected storage systems testing and commissioning procedures

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

  • A valid ID (eg. Drivers Licence)
  • A valid Unrestricted Electrical Licence AND a Certificate III in Electrotechnology
  • Competency in the following units :

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

    These 2 units are covered in our Solar Panel Installation course

  • Ability to install a Solar Battery system for a  Grid Connected PV System and document the process from the beginning to the end

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 also need to have an email address, a computer or laptop, a reliable internet connection and a device that can take pictures and videos such as a smartphone or a tablet.

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.
