Bridging Course for Grid-Connected PV with Battery Storage Design & Install

$999.00$1,059.00

RPL-based Online Course

The GSES Bridging course for Grid-Connected PV with Battery Storage Design & Install is for electricians who have previously designed and installed grid-connected battery systems under the Clean Energy Council’s Grid-Connect and Stand-Alone Power System (SAPS) accreditations.

From April 1 2019, these accreditations are no longer sufficient to install batteries. Electricians designing and installing grid-connected battery systems now need the Clean Energy Council battery storage accreditation, which requires competency in units UEERE5001 and UEERE4001.

This course applies Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) to allow eligible students to avoid time and cost of a full Grid-Connected PV with Battery Storage course.

How it works:

  1. Read these two RPL evidence forms UEERE5001 and UEERE4001 to confirm you have the evidence to submit within 6 months of enrolment.
  2. Complete the Application and Enrolment Form and email with attachments to tutor@gses.com.au
  3. Once Approved, we will provide you an online account to access short online quizzes to assess knowledge not covered by the RPL. There are around 40 questions in total.
  4. Submit your RPL evidence forms within 6months to complete your course.

 

Please read the essential Course Information and Policies before purchasing this course. In addition to completing the fields below, students will need to complete the Application and Enrolment Form for this course as part of enrolment.

Prerequisites

To enrol in this bridging course, you must be a licensed electrician that is accredited by the Clean Energy Council as a designer and installer for both Grid-Connect PV Systems and Stand-Alone Power Systems, and be able to provide the evidence specified in point 2 above. GSES is a Nationally Recognised Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 91461), and students who successfully complete all components of the course will receive a Statement of Attainment or Certificate of Completion for the units of competency UEERE5001 and UEERE4001, depending on whether they have previously attained the Nationally Recognised Training pre-requisite units. This meets the training component of the Clean Energy Council’s requirements for Grid-connect Battery Storage Provisional Accreditation.

Description

This course is designed for electricians who are accredited to design and install grid-connected photovoltaic systems AND stand-alone power systems, and have previously been using these accreditations to design and install grid-connected battery systems. This RPL-based online-only course allows eligible students to apply for the Clean Energy Council battery storage accreditation by using their previous training and experience to meet the majority of the assessable requirements.
This bridging course consists of three components:

  • RPL based on prior completed units of competency: UEENEEK123A, UEENEEK125A, UEENEEK128A, UEENEEK134A, UEENEEK135A, UEENEEK139A and UEENEEK148A (or equivalents).
  • RPL based on evidence submitted by the student of their previous designs, installations and maintenance of grid-connected battery systems. Please view the required evidence for UEERE5001 and UEERE4001.
  • Short online quizzes to assess knowledge not covered by the previous two components. There are around 40 questions in total.

Course access is valid for 6 months.

Prerequisites: Unrestricted electrical licence issued by an Australian state or territory, Clean Energy Council Design and Install accreditations for both Grid-Connect PV and Stand-Alone Power Systems, and demonstrable experience working with grid-connected battery systems (see the Design and Install forms for full evidence requirements).

Outcome of successful completion: Statement of Attainment or Certificate of Completion for the following Units of Competency and eligible to apply for CEC battery storage accreditation (refer to the CEC for any additional requirements).

  • UEERE5001: Design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems
  • UEERE4001: Install, maintain and fault find battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems

Required materials: As current practitioners, students are expected to have current copies of the following Australian Standards:

  • AS/NZS 5033 – Photovoltaic arrays
  • AS/NZS 4777.1 – Grid connection of energy systems via inverters
  • AS/NZS 3000 – Wiring rules
  • AS/NZS 3008.1.1 – Selection of cables Part 1.1
  • AS/NZS 4509.1 – Stand Alone Power Systems – Safety and installation
  • AS/NZS 4509.2 – Stand Alone Power Systems – System Design

Students will also require the following:

  • Computer with reliable Internet connection
  • Scientific calculator
  • Email account, checked regularly

Although not compulsory, the Grid-Connected PV Systems with Battery Storage First Edition is recommended reading for this course. The cost of the book is not included in the course price, but can be purchased in addition.
