Excel Online Course Overview
How the course works
Candidates that register for the online course are expected to watch a series of videos before attending a live webinar where various principles are discussed and example calculations are done.
This 2.5 day online solar PV design-and-install course was created to address the need for organisations or small businesses that require information on sizing, assessing and the installation of solar PV Systems.
The content is ideal for experienced candidates, engineers and electricians as well as organisations thinking of approaching the RE sector.
Any practical parts to the course will be prerecorded and form part of the series of videos.
No formal pre-requisites are required in order to attend this course. Excitement about renewable energy and an eager mind will do. This course contains straight forward calculations, however a relative knowledge of electrical principles may be an added advantage.
The course is intended for an online and distance learning environment and consists of approximately 20 hrs of content of which 2 hrs have been recorded into video sessions, broken down into:
Chapters covered during the webinar:
- PV Technology
- Circuit breakers
- System Calculations and Design
