Solar Grid Connect Design and Install Course


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 Clean Energy Council for accreditation but an additional unit must be done with another RTO –
this is:

RIIWHS204E Work safely at heights

The theory is delivered over 4 days with Zoom. You are in a class, so can talk to the Trainer and other participants. We then run a one-day Practical but if you can’t attend you can do a Case Study for us. Please ring us first to discuss this as we do not do practicals in all of our centres. If you cannot organise a case study for us you have to travel to one of our centres to do a practical day with us.

Practical Days can be booked through our website –

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.
