Program highlights

The Solar PV program takes the learner through several stages of solar PV system from different types of components, system design, installation, testing, commissioning, handover and maintenance.

The immersive virtual scenarios gives the learner the opportunity to inspect a house to specify a new solar PV system and also carry out system maintenance tasks to find various faults.

This online environment provides a safe, realistic place to test their knowledge, make mistakes without real life consequences and boost their skills attainment.


Virtual scenarios:
  • System design
  • System maintenance
E-learning modules:
  • Overview and considerations
  • Health and safety
  • Solar PV basics
  • Types of solar PV panels
  • System components
  • System design
  • Pre-installation
  • Installation
  • PV protection
  • Commissioning
  • Handover and maintenance
