course objectives
  • To provide a pathway for electricians to be Accredited to Clean Energy Council for battery storage systems for grid-connected PV system design and Installation.
  • To design, install, configure, test and commission battery storage gridconnected power supply systems

UEERE4001 Install, maintain and fault nd battery storage systems for gridconnected photovoltaic systems
UEERE5001 Design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic


This competency-based training program is delivered and assessed by

a) face-to-face or remote option available for theoretical content; and

b) hands on practical experience for installation of two grid-connected PV battery              storage install and fault nding: and

c) design task to be completed for grid-connected PV solar leads acid and lithium ion          batteries options.

For installation practical task, you will be assigned to an accredited installer/designer who will supervise you to gain verication of your requisite practical work experience. Alternatively, you can submit your experience to be signed off and veried if you are already working in the industry.

PMV will provide a set of comprehensive notes, ongoing trainer support to complete design task following theory assessments.

Statement of Attainment provides competencies to undertake design, install, configure, test and commission battery storage systems for grid-connected PV system to AS/NZS 5033:2018 Installation of photovoltaic (PV) arrays and AS/NZS 5139:2019 Electrical Installation – Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment

After obtaining the Statement of Attainment, the student can apply to the Clean Energy Council of Australia for Battery Storage for Grid-Connect PV Systems Accreditation. The Clean Energy Council website indicates the information required to apply for Clean Energy Council Accreditation
