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.

Prerequisites
