GSES recently announced the launch of a continuous professional development (CPD) training day designed to help accredited solar installers maintain and expand their knowledge in a changing industry while meeting their accreditation renewal requirements in a single day.
The solar industry and its scaled growth over the past 5 years has seen unprecedented uptake of this technology across all system sizes. How well industry keeps up with the rapid expansion of this technology’s deployment depends on targeted continuous ongoing professional development. GSES uses its exposure to the solar industry as a consulting and training specialist to identify current information gaps and provide appropriate professional training and information.
GSES has developed three new professional development courses and packaged them into a single day of training. The courses covered are: Commissioning, Maintenance and Fault Finding; Responding to Solar Tenders: Technical Content; and PV Module Power Conditioning and Control Devices. These ‘PD days’ focus on practical, up-to-date knowledge, and successful students will receive a total of 115 CPD points, which can be used towards Clean Energy Council (CEC) accreditation renewal.
Susan L. Neill, Director of GSES, said: “CPD is vital if the industry and its members are going to keep up with rapid technological advances and growing uptake. As competition gets increasingly fierce, those with better knowledge will find it easier to succeed. GSES PD days provide installers a chance to build that knowledge and develop at an appropriate rate to compete.”
GSES PD days, currently priced at $295 inc. GST, will be held at the GSES training centre in Botany, NSW, on 10 October 2014, 21 November 2014, 13 March 2015 and 24 April 2015. PD days will also be held in Brisbane and Melbourne on dates to be advised. Expressions of interest for these locations, and any other enquiries, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
