Online Course

The Battery Storage Systems for Grid-Connected PV Systems: 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 Accreditation 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.

FAQs and other information

Prerequisites

In order to receive a Statement of Attainment and have the course qualify as Nationally Recognised Training, students must hold the VET sector prerequisite Unit of Competency UEENEEK135A. Other course participants will receive a certificate of completion.

This course builds on the knowledge of the Grid-Connected PV Systems Design only course, so a prerequisite for enrolment is a Statement of Attainment in, or certificate of completion equivalent to, the following Unit of Competency:

  • UEENEEK135A: Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems
Materials and Equipment

Students are supplied with a copy of the GSES publication Battery Storage Systems for Grid-Connected PV Systems 2nd Edition as part of enrolment; the cost of the publication and shipping is included in the course price. Students are responsible for obtaining current copies of the following Australian Standards, available for purchase from the SAI Global website or Techstreet website, and also available from some libraries, institutions and industry associations:

  • AS/NZS 5139 – Electrical installations – Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment
  • AS/NZS 4777.1 – Grid connection of energy systems via inverters – Part 1: Installation requirements
  • AS/NZS 5033 – Installation and safety requirements for photovoltaic (PV) arrays
  • AS/NZS 3000 – Wiring Rules
  • AS/NZS 3008.1.1 – Electrical installations – Selection of cables

Students will also require the following:

  • Computer with a reliable Internet connection
  • Scientific calculator
  • Email account, checked regularly
Delivery Method and Duration

This course is delivered online at students’ own pace. The time to complete the online component will differ between students, but students should expect to commit around 84 hours (60 hours for online content and assessments, and 24 hours for the design task).
