Solar Accreditation Training - Stand Alone Power System Install & Design


This course is for those that wish to design and install power supply systems that are not connected to the grid. It covers 4 of the 5 PV system knowledge required units of competence as outlined by the Clean Energy Council (CEC) for Standalone Power System (SPS) Design and Install accreditation.

It is assumed that most students will have completed grid install and/or grid design which covers the 5th unit required (UEENEEK125A) prior to undertaking this training. For those that have not, the unit K125 must also be completed prior to the 4th day of attendance. K125 is covered in the first two days of the Grid Connect courses or may be offered as a special enrolment if demand dictates.

The course topics include an introduction to renewable energy technologies, energy efficient building design, energy audit, batteries, charge controllers, battery based inverters, wind turbines, gensets, standards and regulations, installation, commissioning, fault finding and designing standalone power systems.

On successful completion of the course, the student will be able to select and match components, design, install and maintain standalone power systems to meet customers’ requirements, renewable resource(s) available, Australian Standards and industry guidelines.

An unrestricted electrical licence is not required to complete this training. Without an electrical licence you will be able to do all of the wiring for the standalone system up its output terminals, but not be able to do any wiring on the installation itself.

Prior to undertaking training, you must ensure that you have met the pre-requisites as outlined by the Clean Energy Council (CEC). A list of the requirements is available at

You may be able to obtain these units of competency through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfer (CT). Holders of an electrical license or Electrical/Electronics Degree are given credit for these units

Note: Subsidised training may be available through sources such as the CITB or the Industry Skills Fund.
