Logic4training’s Solar PV course is a QCF Level 3 qualification in the Installation & Maintenance of Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems and is for experienced domestic/commercial operatives wishing to include solar photovoltaics in their scope of works. The Solar PV course meets the training entry requirements for theMicrogeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Thanks to legally binding targets to cut carbon and the introduction of Feed in Tariffs (FiTs), solar photovoltaics (PV) is a natural development for the electrical market and should be considered by any electrical installation company or engineer. Visit our renewable energy blog renewable energy blog posts for regular updates on what is happening in the green energy sector.

The cost of the course includes training, assessment, the certification and a course manual.

Operatives must be experienced in the design and installation of domestic single phase circuits, plus issuing the appropriate documentation (electrical installation certificate, schedule of inspections and schedule of test results). In order to attend the course, candidates will need to hold an Electrotechnical NVQ or SVQ Level 3 or a Full Scope Part P qualification. Candidates must also hold a Level 3 QCF qualification (if not part of the NVQ) in the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations BS7671:2008 (2011).

The Solar PV course is intended for experienced electricians who wish to up-skill to include solar PV in their offering.

The course covers the predominant solar PV systems (grid connected). Training does not feature all possible variants of this subject and manufacturer’s support and guidance should always be sought when fitting equipment. The following topics are covered:

  • Background to market and grant funding routes (including MCS)
  • Regulations and standards
  • Health & Safety considerations
  • AC & DC theory
  • PV cell types and benefits
  • PV external and internal site survey requirements
  • Solar PV circuit design
  • PV system design and integration
  • Setting to work and commissioning
  • Solar PV servicing and fault finding
 
The solar photovoltaic training is carried out on simulated rigs, on our full size roof with installed panels and in the classroom. We would recommend that solar photovoltaic installers also complete a Working at Heights course.

Logic4training’s Solar PV course includes a practical and a written assessment. The written paper takes the form of a multiple choice question paper and a design scenario. Successful candidates will be issued with a Logic Certification QCF Level 3 Award in the Installation of Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems certificate.
