What We Teach

We cover all the procedures and requirements that installers are faced with throughout the lifecycle of a project, from quoting through to compliance.


Key differences & costs

We go over the key costs and services that are sometimes overlooked when planning a commercial solar project.

One of the key differences between commercial and residential solar projects is the amount of regulation, and with this extra regulation, comes extra requirements from the installer. We cover the main services and costs that are usually overlooked when installers take on their first commercial project.

Key Topics:
  • Network Protection
  • Injection Testing
  • Structural Engineering Reports
  • Grid Applications


Designing a system

Successful system design ensures that you are able to install the most effective solution possible within your allocated budget. We cover what you should be doing before every system design.

Key Topics:
  • System Design
  • Interval Data
  • Financial Tools
  • Solar panel layout


Managing a project

Successful project management usually determines whether a project gets completed on time and within budget.

We stress the importance of meticulous project management on-site: who does what, required documentation, time management, safety, compliance and other key areas that will ensure successful delivery of your project.

Key Topics:
  • Safe Work Method Statements (SWM’s)
  • OH&S
  • Material handling on site
  • Managing staff
  • RACI checklist


Installing a system

Understanding how to install on both the DC / AC side.
