    The Solar Power Designer Back-up course focuses on the design and planning of PV back-up systems. The course takes the participant through the step-by-step process of an installation: from client consultations to site visit and design, and finally quotation and installation. It includes two different case studies along which participants practice the sizing of PV systems. The course also equips the participant to understand solar PV as a business and the process of becoming an accredited PV installer.

    I'm from SANRAL Technical Innovation. We are expanding on our road network so we have a few renewable energy sites and therefor we need the best design so myself and two of my colleagues attended the course. And it was really fun! We had workshops and hands-on experiments with the tools. Thank you very much! It was a really well presented course and I really enjoyed it!

    I did the Sunrise Intermediate course in 2014. We were a plumbing company and wanted to become a solar company. After 6 months we set up our own operation, paid school fees in the early years, went to China and ended up now using Victron. I am now the biggest seller for Victron equipment in Africa and the second biggest in the world. When I started, the course gave me an understanding in how to approach solar. A tip I give to all the people I get requests from is to take advantage of opportunities at the time!
