This Solar Panel Installation course is designed for electricians who want to learn how to install solar photo voltaic systems. This course does not include design of grid connected solar PV systems.


After successful completion of this course you will be able to apply for  the Grid-connect Install Only 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 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 Panel Installation 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 Panel Installation 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 video evidence of you installing racking, evidence of you Installing inverter and connecting.


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