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 (www.cleanenergycouncil.org.au) accredtitation.
