In order to enrol in this Solar Battery storage 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
    UEERE0011 – Design grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems
    UEERE0016 – Install, configure and commission grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems.

    These 3 units are covered in our  Solar Design & Install Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems 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, a computer 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 Solar Battery storage course, you will be able to apply for the accreditation by the Clean Energy Council of Australia (CEC). You can find more information about the 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 qualification include:

  • Solar battery technician
  • Solar battery electrician
  • Solar battery installer
  • Solar battery designer
