Solar Grid Connect Design and Install Course Melbourne – Design and Install

A course for licensed electricians to enable them to apply for Clean Energy Council accreditation to install grid connected power systems. Funding may be available.


The Grid Connect course offered by Skillbuild Training 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.

The training will be delivered through a combination of technical/theoretical training, and workshop practical training and assessment. The course covers the essential knowledge and skills required to meet industry requirements. The training is carried out over 4 days (with some pre-course work required) . We do a ‘real’ install as part of the training, not just look at systems. We also don’t send you away to do extra work in your own time.


Upon completion you will be able to apply for accreditation with the Clean Energy Council.

Accreditation allows you to

  • Access the STC’s for your customers
  • Make installation costs lower for your customers
  • Follow a recognised code of conduct for installers
  • Use the Clean Energy Council logo on your advertising – with permission
  • Access a restricted technical support website run by CEC


The course units are those specified by the Clean Energy Council which will enable you apply for accreditation if you successfully achieve the required competencies. The current requirements are for three units to be completed.

UEENEEK135A Design grid connected photovoltaic power systems
