This highly interactive virtual reality based e-learning programme covers in a visually engaging manner everything you need to know about Solar Photovoltaic (PV) installation. The course content is aligned to the QCF Framework so can be used for study towards certification.

The programme is intended to facilitate learning and enhance the understanding of the otherwise complex solar photovoltaic concepts as well as instil good working practices for system design, installation, commissioning and handover.

Users will be able to practice and learn at their own time, pace, and in a safe environment. This course is ideal for professionals who wish to upgrade or refresh their knowledge and for use individually and in a classroom session led by a tutor.

By using and completing this programme, you will be able to:

  • Gain an insight into the basics of equipment such as PV panels, inverters, isolators and meters systems
  • Understand solar PV systems design, installation and commissioning
  • Relate to health and safety issues when carrying out work
  • Explain what solar PV is and how to determine the optimum performance
  • Explain how a solar PV works
  • List the principles of solar PV selection and system design
  • Explain the preparatory work required for installation and know how to install a solar PV system
  • List the requirements and know how to test, commission and handover solar PV installations

 BENEFITS

  • Covers information you need to know about solar PV
  • Helps you become more technically proficient
  • Enables you to study when you choose and at your own pace
  • Illustrates solar PV systems using 3D animation which explains them in a way you normally can’t see or experience
  • Provides everything you need to know to pass the exams
  • Being mapped to the QCF it contributes towards certification
  • Ideal for professionals who wish to upgrade or refresh their knowledge
  • Perfect for both individual learning or for use in a classroom session led by a tutor
