GREEN PV Installer

Successful participation in this online exam qualifies you to become a GREEN PV Installer. This qualification is especially relevant when you want to perform the physical installation of PV solar systems.

This exam will ensure you understand the physical properties and correct handling of all your components, including mounting structures and cabling, and is great preparation for the 2-Day PV GreenCard assessment. This exam covers topics taught on Day 1, 2 and 3 of the SuperSolarSchool.

You will be tested on:

  • Solar radiation
  • Mounting solutions for different roof types and optimal orientation of PV modules; you will also need to draw a schematic of a solar PV grid-tied system
  • Correct handling, mounting and connection of PV modules
  • Best cabling practices
  • Selecting the ideal site for the inverter, and when to select landscape versus portrait mounting of modules
  • Calculating the number of modules and BOS materials required for a site

The exam is good preparation for the SAPVIA PV Assessment for the PV GreenCard.

The idea of this assessment is to apply the knowledge gained during the courses and while working in the field. This should give you good feedback about where you stand when it comes to PV; at the same time, the exam should ensure your expertise and knowledge and show you where you have potential gaps you need to work on in future.
