This course is for licensed Electricians. It enables Clean Energy Council Accreditation for ‘Design and Install – Grid Connected Systems’.


The Grid Connect course offered by Skillbuild 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 accrediting 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).


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

Accreditation allows you to

  • Access feed in tariffs offered by supply authorities/retailers
  • Make installation costs lower for your customers
