This course has been created specifically for candidates who require a fuller understanding of photovoltaic system configuration, but are not looking to install PV systems, for example anyone involved in designing, managing or surveying solar photovoltaic systems for others to install.
The introduction of Feed in Tariffs (FiTs) and government targets to cut carbon emissions has meant that solar photovoltaics is a natural development for the electrical market and should be considered by any electrical installation company or engineer.
As with all of our training at SWAAT, the training is delivered by our team of qualified and experienced tutors.
To provide knowledge and an understanding of photovoltaic solar and electrical systems.
Those working alongside photovoltaic solar installers.
Typical course candidates include roofers, architects, building engineers, local Government, housing association employees and salepersons working within the renewable sector.
Candidates must have some basic electrical knowledge, but do not require the electrical qualifications needed for the other solar photovoltaics courses offered by South West Assessment and Training.
For anyone wishing to install solar photovolatic systems SWAAT also offer a solar photovoltaic installation course.
For anyone new to electrical work, or who would like to update their knowledge and skills, it is highly recommended that they undertake the Basic Electrics course prior to this course.
