Grid-Connected PV Systems with Battery Storage Design Only
The Grid-Connected PV Systems with Battery Storage: Design only Course is designed for grid-connected photovoltaic system designers who wish to further their skills by being able to incorporate battery storage systems. The delivery mode of this course is designed for busy tradespeople and professionals who do not have the time to attend lengthy face-to-face courses to expand their knowledge and skills: the fully flexible web-based format of the online component allows students to complete the theory in their own time.
To enrol in this course, you must have previously successfully completed an approved Grid-connected PV Systems Design course. Students who successfully complete all components of the course will receive a certificate of completion equivalent to UEERE5001. This meets the training component of the Clean Energy Council’s requirements for Battery Storage Design endorsement for CEC Grid-connect accredited designers; however, this course is not considered Nationally Recognised Training for students who have not completed the relevant VET sector prerequisite units of competency.
Please read the essential Course Information and Policies before purchasing this course.
