PV GreenCard training and Assessment now also in KZN Ballito.

We are proud to announce that we have a new PV GreenCard Assessment center in KZN Ballito in partnership with SolarVest. The first PV GreenCard Assessment will be on 19-20 May and registrations are now open.

The PV GreenCard was developed by South African Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA) in conjunction with the German Solar Energy Society (DGS Berlin) and the German International Cooperation (GIZ) to develop a national standardized report. This report is called the PV GreenCard and aims to promote a good standard of quality for Solar PV installations.

How do I get the qualification?

Prove your PV knowledge and installer skills in the SAPVIA PV Assessment. Sign up at one of the official assessment centers and take the theoretical and practical exam. Registration for the SAPVIA PV Assessment through www.solar-training.org.

It is also recommended that the installer familiarise themselves with the SAPVIASolar PV Installation Guidelines. This document alongside the relevant building codes, regulations, and national electrical codes will be the basis for PV installations in the country. GREEN Solar Academy also suggests preparing for the course by participating in the SuperSolarSchool, the SAPVIA endorsed 5-day preparation course.

Once you have signed up for and completed an industry-approved PV Assessment you will need to make sure that you are registered on the SAPVIA PV GreenCard Installer Database and pay the R1000 registration fee online. Once all this is completed you will be able to issue PV GreenCards for your PV installations and contribute to the growing confidence and surety of quality in the solar PV industry.

Important: The PV GreenCard can be issued by any PV installer who passed the assessment but if he/she doesn’t have a wireman’s license you will need a certified electrician to sign as well.
