The Solar PV Course Package – City & Guilds 2399-01 Environmental Awareness and City & Guilds 2399-11 Level 3 Award in the Installation of Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems

Solar PV Course Package – Foundation

The Trades e-Academy, in partnership with the NICEIC, has developed a range of renewable energy course packages allowing you to specialise in small scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems (Solar PV). These courses are part of a blended learning solution where online training is combined with in-centre practical training and assessment.

The renewable energy foundation course package consists of:

  • Environmental Awareness (2399-01)
  • Solar PV Installation (2399-11)

 

Course Summaries

Environmental Awareness (2399-01)

This renewable energy foundation qualification has been designed to enable learners to develop a fundamental knowledge of micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies; including solar thermal (hot water); solar PV; heat pumps (ground and air); micro wind; biomass; micro-hydro; micro-combined heat and power; rain water and grey water harvesting. The knowledge gained from this course will be ideal for advising potential clients on the best installation to meet their requirements.

This qualification is suitable for practicing electricians who have completed their 17th Edition qualification and are looking to complete further qualifications in renewable energy technologies without spending two days in the classroom.

It is estimated that the online course material will take approximately 2 hours to complete (depending on learning speed). As an e-learning course you can complete this training in convenient stages and revisit whenever you wish. The system will record your progress throughout.
 

Solar PV Installation (2399-11)

This e-learning qualification has been designed to provide learners with an understanding of small scale solar photovoltaic systems. Learners will gain an understanding of the relevant regulations / standards, standard test conditions, health and safety considerations, electrical connections and system components, inspection processes, and the testing, certification and handover procedures.

This qualification is suitable for learners who would like to expand their business or for learners that would like to advance their understanding of the PV industry. It may also be suitable for anyone requiring an understanding of the installation requirements of a small scale PV system.

It is estimated that the online course material will take approximately 12-18 hours to complete (depending on learning speed). As an e-learning course you can complete this training in convenient stages and revisit whenever you wish. The system will record your progress throughout.
