    Description

    Do you want to learn how to install PV systems? Do you want more practical training instead of studying books? Then this course is for you! In the two days of training we practice PV system installation. Starting with nothing but a wiring chart and material list, we plan and execute the installation together, up to commissioning and testing of the system.
    If you don't have the time (or budget) for the 5-day course, the PV Mounter is a great alternative. It is also a good choice if you did our 5-day SuperSolarSchool already and found the practical to be a too fast or need more practice. Why not bring your installation team with you to practice all together? Team discounts are available!

    Why is this course needed? Because the best PV system is only as good as its connections -be it cables or screws! So let's train how to get the details right and build long-lasting PV systems.

     

    Main Topics

    The course focuses on how to stay safe on the roof and how to install PV systems correctly. Topics are:

    • Planning an installation based on wiring charts and material lists
    • Preparing the site, tools and equipment
    • Dos & Don'ts on site
    • On-site safety
    • Hands-on PV installation on different roof types
    • Wiring of PV System
    • Commissioning and programming of inverters (different manufacturers)

    Target Audience

    • New solar installers looking for practical experience
    • Technicians and Electricians who need a crash course on solar installation
    • SuperSolarSchool alumni who want to refresh the installation part
    • Installation teams who need fast and efficient practical training

    Prerequisites

    None.

    Anyone who is interested can join the course, a qualification as electrician is not required. But please note that this course is completely hands-on! For theoretical basics and knowledge on PV system components, design and planning, please book the SuperSolarSchool.

    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!
