In order to enrol in this Solar Battery Installation course you must have:

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

    UEERE0022 – Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus
    UEERE0016 – Install, configure and commission grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems

    These 2 units are covered in our Solar Panel Installation Course.

*What if I have lost my actual Grid Connect Certificate? Is my CEC accreditation certificate enough to enrol in the course?

As per the ASQA requirements, we need to verify that you have completed the prerequisite units in order to issue a statement of attainment. 

Here are a few solutions if you can't find your statement of attainment:

  • If you have completed your course from 2015 you can provide us access to your USI record so we can check the units attained
  • If you have completed your Grid connect course before 2015 you can contact the RTO where you have completed your course
  • If you are still unable to get your statement of attainment for the prerequisite units but you have a CEC accreditation for Grid-Connected PV Systems, you can still do the course but we will issue you a statement of completion which is a non-accredited certificate. CEC accreditation could be attained on the basis of a Statement of completion, you will have to contact CEC and confirm before enrolling into the program.

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 to bring :

  • 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 online theory part of the course.

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.
