The skills assessment allows participants to test their theoretical and practical capability of installing PV rooftop systems.

Installers who successfully pass the assessment will receive a Certificate of Approval from SAPVIA and will be recognised as a SAPVIA-assessed PV GreenCard Installer.

Registration on the SAPVIA directory is open to Certified PV GreenCard Installation Companies. In order to qualify for registration, a company must be registered as an electrical contractor with the DoEL and employ a SAPVIA-assessed PV GreenCard Installer. Any CIPC-registered company can register as electrical contractors where the owner or one or more full-time employees is an electrical tester for single phase (TSP), installation electrician (IE) or master electrician (ME).

For more information please see www.pvgreencard.co.za or click here.

The PV GreenCard Assessment is for PV professionals. The ideal preparation for the  assessment is participation in the SuperSolarSchool, the SAPVIA endorsed 5-day preparation course.

  • Theoretical Assessment (exam in the classroom)
  • Familiarization workshop and induction (only installers)
  • Grouping of the participants for the practical assessment

Practical Assessment day (8am to 1pm)

  • Random selection of installation teams of 3 installers.
  • Practical examination on installation and wiring of a 6-module grid-tied PV system on assessment roofs
  • Overall Feedback session

Scoring

  • Theoretical Assessment – Pass rate 80%
  • Practical Assessment – Pass rate 80%
  • Overall Scoring – Pass rate 80 %, whereby the scoring of the theoretical assessment is weighted 42% and practical 58%

Furthermore, it is recommended that installers familiarise themselves with the SAPVIA Solar PV Installation Guidelines. This document in conjunction with all relevant national electrical codes, building codes and regulations shall be the basis for PV installations in the country.

OUR GRADUATES

Christian August
Pupkewitz-Megatech / 2022 Alumni, SuperSolarSchool

Christian August

I am a qualified electrician holding a Trade Certificate in Electrical General, currently working as a renewable sales consultant. I already had 2 years’ experience in the physical installation of solar. Now, I've learned how to size the systems myself, and more about the types of systems on offer, protection devices, and the monitoring options available. I would like to advise young people, electricians and solar technicians to take part in this training to learn about solar in depth.

Ambrosio Lusuekikio
Telecom Engineer & IT Project manager / 2022 Alumni, SuperSolarSchool

Ambrosio Lusuekikio

Prior to attending SuperSolarSchool, I had a little knowledge of solar through reading. I co-ordinate and consult on community projects, so I needed to be 100% sure I was dispensing the correct, safe, effective solar advice. I would recommend this training to technicians, solar installers and electricians so that they can get more knowledge and skills on how to maintain solar.

Weber Stenberg

Weber Stenberg

I am currently a Project Manager with a background of working as a refrigerator technician and electrician. This course taught me how to do system design, what to consider when doing maintenance, and how to engage potential clients. Next, I will be going for my PV GreenCard. I will be recommending this same training for my team who are busy assisting me with the installations.

Theophelus Halukolo

My electrical background allowed me to set up my own company. I came to the training to also learn how to do battery and inverter sizing, which I did. I also learned the importance of site visits and doing a full load profile analysis. I would highly recommend this training!

Elario Muller
Pupkewitz-Megatech / 2022 Alumni, SuperSolarSchool

Elario Muller

I have a background in advertising and marketing, and my current job is Business Development Manager at Pupkewitz. Thanks to this training, I will be able to generate more proposals, as I have a far better understating of how to calculate system size. I will obviously recommend this training to other technicians or solar installers.

I am a Technical Advisor with a background in farming (agriculture has actually been my hobby since I was young). I had no pre-knowledge of solar before this training, and I have learned a lot about how solar PV works. I’m going to continue to get more knowledge and skills in solar. I would recommend this training to anyone who would be interested.

Ivan Louw
24 Hour Electrical / 2022 Alumni, SuperSolarSchool

Ivan Louw

I am salesman and HR practitioner with a basic knowledge of electricity. I had no pre-knowledge of solar. Now that my training is done, my goal is to become a certified solar technician and start my own installation company.

Godfryd Kakumo
Pupkewitz-Megatech / 2022 Alumni, SuperSolarSchool

Godfryd Kakumo

I am a Renewable Energy Consultant with 6 years’ experience in solar system installation. This training taught me how to do design in depth and how to balance the system with calculations and the usage of designing software. I would recommend this training to solar installers and consultants.
