This Solar Design and Install course is designed for electricians who want to learn how to design and install solar photo voltaic 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 the best quality training. 

This course is designed for Electricians working in the solar industry or Electricians willing to install a full 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 O8 6244 2575 and request to speak with the Solar trainer

This Solar Design and Install course covers providing known solutions to predictable problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems operated at ELV and LV. It encompasses working safely, problem solving procedures, including the use of basic voltage, current and resistance measuring devices, providing known solutions to predictable circuit problems.


This Solar Design and Install course covers the design of grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems and their installation. It encompasses following design briefs, incorporating schemes for protection of persons and property from dangers of system malfunction, ensuring other safety and performance standards and functional requirements are meet and documenting design calculations and criteria.


This course covers the installation, adjustment and set-up of photovoltaic power systems and connecting to a supply grid inverter. It encompasses working safely and to installation standards, matching components with that specified for a given location, placing and securing system components accurately, making required circuit connections and completing the necessary installation documentation.

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 drawing a schematic for the wiring for the Solar system, evidence of you installing racking, evidence of you Installing inverter, connecting inverter to Isolators, proper installation of decktite, panels etc. 

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