Pair workplace protocols and creative initiative to methodically design and produce various projects.
The grid-connect skill set offered by Volt Edge has been designed for licensed electricians who want to obtain accreditation from the Clean Energy Council (CEC).
This will enable them to access incentives offered by the Federal Government for solar panel installations.
The course on offer meets the requirements of the regulating body, the Clean Energy Council, for accreditation.
In light of the popularity in solar generated-energy, Volt Edge has created this course to meet the demand in the market for electricians able to design and install grid connected photovoltaic systems. As a result, we aim to install our students with the expert knowledge and skills to efficiently and confidently get the job done. To do so, this course covers providing known solutions to predictable problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems operated at ELV and LV; the installation, adjustment and set-up of photovoltaic power systems and connecting to a supply grid inverter; the design of grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems and their installation.
The lessons encompass working safely, problem solving procedures, including the use of basic voltage, current and resistance measuring devices, providing known solutions to predictable circuit problems; working safely and to installation standards, matching components with that specified for a given location, placing and securing system components accurately, making required circuit connections and completing the necessary installation documentation; and following design briefs, incorporating schemes for protection of persons and property from dangers of system malfunction, ensuring other safety and performance standards and functional requirements are meet and documenting design calculations and criteria.
This is a 4 day course in a face to face environment.
Training is completed face to face.
24hr access to Volt Edge support network.
