Solar Grid Connect (5 Day - NECA)

The Grid Connect is a 5 day course (by NECA) consisting of both theory and practical components. Successful completion of this course will allow application to the Clean Energy Council for a provisional Grid Connected Solar PV installers accreditation. Days 1 and 2 consist of Theory with a few small practicals to break up the theory and test application. Days 3, 4 and 5 consist mainly of practical exercises with a small amount of theory to reinforce the practical exercises.

This course provides training for electricians to gain the required skills to install Grid Connected PV Solar systems. Successful completion of the course meets the Clean Energy Council (CEC) UEE11 Accreditation pathway (UEERE4001) and will entitle licensed electricians to apply for the C.E.C; Install of Grid Connected PV Systems ( accredtitation. The course is delivered through face to face practical and theory workshops. Competency is granted when all components of the course have been completed satisfactorily.

Course Details:

This course runs over five days and will provide you with the necessary qualifications to apply for accreditation from the Clean Energy Council for the Grid Connect PV Systems accreditation.

This course includes the following unit competencies:

  • UEENEEK125A – Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
  • UEENEEK135A – Design photovoltaic grid connected power supply systems
  • UEENEEK148A – Install, configure and commission photovoltaic grid connected power systems

Which covers 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 met and documenting design calculations and criteria. The skills and knowledge required to complete the installation, adjustment and set-up of photovoltaic (PV) 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. And then provide them with the ability to find solutions to predictable problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems operated at extra low voltage and low voltage.
