Solar Awareness for Tradespeople

$295.00

Online Short Course

Solar power systems are complex installations which include several components and a range of procedures. Focusing on safety through education, GSES has created the Solar Awareness for Tradespeople online short course. This interactive course is aimed at educating those with little to no solar experience on how to work safely on sites with a solar power system. Upon completion of the course students will learn the key hazards tradespeople may come across.

For more in-depth reading material on safety around installed solar power, students can also download a PDF copy of the Solar Awareness for Tradespeople informational report.
