Online and 3 day face-to-face Practical Course

The Battery Storage Systems for Grid-Connected PV Systems: Design and Install Course consists of two main components: online theory completed at students’ own pace and the face-to-face (3 days) component held at a GSES Training Facility. The delivery mode of this course is designed for busy tradespeople 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 be a licensed electrician and have previously completed the units of competency UEENEEK125A, UEENEEK135A and UEENEEK148A. 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 for the units of competency UEERE4001 and UEERE5001. This meets the training component of the Clean Energy Council’s requirements for Battery Storage Design and Install accreditation.

Please read the essential Course Information and Policies before purchasing this course.

FAQs and other information

Prerequisites

An electrical licence is a prerequisite for enrolment in this course. This course builds on the knowledge of the Grid-Connected PV Systems Design and Install course, so a prerequisite for enrolment is a Statement of Attainment in the following Units of Competency:

  • UEENEEK135A: Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems
  • UEENEEK148A: Install, configure and commission LV grid connected photovoltaic power 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 uses two delivery methods: online theory completed at students’ own pace and the 3-day face-to-face component held at a GSES Training Facility.

Online component: 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).

Practical component: Approximately 60% of the online assessments must be completed before booking the face-to-face practical component. The confirmed date for the practical component is only available once a student has completed the necessary online assessments, used the online link to select a date, and received a confirmation email from GSES. Practicals are held in Chullora, Sydney, and scheduled dates can be viewed here. Note that dates are subject to minimum and maximum numbers, and places cannot be guaranteed until the necessary amount of online work is completed.

Courses are valid for twelve (12) months. Extension fees apply from the date of expiry, and the maximum extension permitted is six (6) months from the date of expiry.

  • If the student’s Learning, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) levels are determined by GSES to be below the standard required to complete the coursework successfully, and the student has not yet submitted coursework for assessment, GSES may offer a full refund of the online course material and practical training component. If the student then opts to continue with the course, the standard cancellation and refund policy applies.
  • Cancellation of online training courses made within fourteen (14) days of the date of payment AND before the online course has been accessed: the student will receive a full refund of the online course payment.
  • Cancellation of online training courses made within fourteen (14) days of the date of payment AND after the online course has been accessed AND before any coursework has been submitted for assessment: the student will receive a refund of the online course payment less a cancellation fee of $440 inc GST.
  • Cancellation more than fourteen (14) days after the date of payment OR after the first coursework (i.e. the Introduction to Battery Energy Storage Assessment) is submitted for assessment (whichever occurs first): the student will receive no refund.
  • All course refunds are exclusive of the price of the supplied course publication as advertised at the time of enrolment, unless the publication is returned to GSES in an undamaged and unused condition. GSES reserves the right to refuse a refund of the publication on the basis that goods are damaged or have been used prior to return.
