Duration: 3 Days
This course is designed to provide practising installers with the skills and knowledge required to enable them to select the most appropriate solar PV system for a building based on consultation with the client about their needs and demands and to install some of the common types of PV systems in a safe and workmanlike manner. It also provides training in the maintenance and servicing of PV systems.
The BPEC Solar PV Installer qualification has been developed to meet the requirements of the National Occupational Standards. The BPEC Solar PV course and certificate are recognised by all the current Microgeneration Certification Scheme bodies as meeting the requirements for appropriate training in the PV technology sector. Successful completion of the training and assessment will provide training evidence for suitably qualified individuals to include with their application for registration on a Microgeneration Certification Scheme that would allow self certification and notification to Building Control Departments of work completed.
