The Grid Connected PV with Battery Storage short course provides nationally accredited training for electricians in the installation of grid-connected PV battery storage systems.

The course provides the accredited training required to apply for the Clean Energy Council Battery Storage Endorsement.

This course blends online learning with practical face-to-face on-campus workshops. Students are required to complete online study and attend a series of on-campus practical workshop sessions. The online study and on-campus sessions are delivered in parallel, by one course instructor.

The course is delivered by Holmesglen’s Renewable Energy Centre of Excellence - Australia’s premier facility for delivering nationally accredited training in solar energy. Designed to provide real-world hands-on simulated practical activities, our students get unrivalled training with access to premium equipment.

The course is for electricians who have completed the design and install grid-connected PV systems course or have provisional Solar Accreditation. To become endorsed to install grid-connected battery storage, accreditation must also be held for the design and install of grid-connected (GC) photovoltaic systems.
