Solar panels have become increasingly popular in Australia in recent years for a number of reasons. With rising energy prices and concerns over climate change, more and more households have turned to photovoltaic energy in order to reduce both their energy bills and carbon footprints.
In fact, according to the Clean Energy Regulator, there are currently more than 329,500 residential solar power systems in place in Western Australia alone, representing a solar PV saturation of 28.8% of all households. These systems boasted a total capacity of 1.34GW - effectively making rooftop solar WA's biggest power generator.
As solar power systems increase in popularity, it's becoming more and more important for electricians to have the proper solar accreditation that will allow them to design and install photovoltaic energy apparatus for both homes and businesses.
This nationally accredited course delivers the requisite training to licensed electricians to enable them to design and instal grid-connected photovoltaic systems and associated equipment required for Clean Energy Council Accreditation. The course provides knowledge and practical skills in the design and installation, set-up, test, fault find, repair and maintenance of grid-connected photovoltaic systems.
The Units of Competency also contribute to the completion of relevant Certificate III, Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma qualifications from the UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package.
For those looking to take advantage of this boom in demand for solar power by being able to design and install solar energy systems for homes and businesses, a Clean Energy Council Solar Accreditation is a must-have. This course can equip you with the skills and training you need to help make this happen.

The CET Skills Recognition process benefits applicants who have undergone prior learning and recognises competencies obtained outside a formal educational or training environment, gained through life or work experience. Competencies currently held by applicants will be formally assessed against each applicable Unit of Competency and maybe recognised regardless of how, when and where they were achieved. Skills Recognition is an assessment process and a cost recovery charge will apply.
CET accepts and provides credit to learners for units of competency and/or modules (unless licensing or regulatory requirements prevent this) where these are evidenced by:
If you believe you are entitled to Skills and/or National Recognition, we encourage you to complete an Application Form available from our administration team.
