Grid-Connected PV Systems Design Only

Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems Design Only course is mainly for electricians, engineers or Non engineers or electricians who wish to learn how to design grid-connected photovoltaic systems.

This course is designed as a 100% Online Self-paced Course.

Electricians who successfully complete the course will receive a Statement of Attainment for the units UEERE0022 and UEERE0011.

Engineers will receive a Certificate of Completion meeting the CEC’s requirements for Grid-connect Design Provisional Accreditation.

Non engineers or electricians may take this course for their own knowledge, but there currently isn’t a pathway to accreditation at this time.

Training Outcome

Successful completion of the course will award the Student with a Statement of Attainment or Certificate of Completion in the current version of the following Units of Competency:
Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and system
Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems
Electricians and students holding the prerequisite Units of Competency will receive a Statement of Attainment for the current version of these Units of Competency.

Statement of Attainment upon completion of the course will be given to students who have either of the following:

  • An unrestricted electrical license issued by an Australian state or territory
  • Competency in the following units by Statements of Attainment or authenticated USI transcript:

If students do not meet the above requirement, but wish to apply for CEC accreditation upon completion of the course, they must demonstrate sufficient prior electrical knowledge through An electrical engineering degree recognised by the Washington Accord.

Students who do not meet any of the prerequisites described, can attempt the course for self-learning without CEC accreditation but please note that there is heavy use of computers, calculators and mathematical equations, so it is strongly recommended that students should have prior knowledge of mathematics, as well as computer and calculator skills.

Online mode: The course will be delivered 100% online and can complete the course at students’ own pace.

Online Course Timeframe: The time to complete the online component will differ between students, but students should expect to commit around 56 hours (40 hours for online content and assessments, and 16 hours for the design task)

The validation period of the Courses is twelve (12) months. Extension fees will apply after the date of expiry, and the maximum extension period allowed is six (6) months from the date of expiry.
