Solar Courses​

Solar power is growing so quickly it is predicted to become the biggest source of electricity on the planet by 2040 and Australia is leading the way in rooftop solar. The solar industry is screaming for accredited solar designers and installers. Enrolling into the Grid-connect PV Systems course is your gateway to being part of this solar revolution. This training will equip you with essential skills to design and install solar PV systems on residential and commercial roofs. You can opt for the design only, install only or design and install course. These courses will pave the way for SAA (Solar Accreditation Australia) accreditation.

Training Up are experts in all things solar and solar batteries. Our trainers bring a wealth of industry experience and insights and are currently employed in the solar industry bringing you the most recent and up-to-date developments. You will walk away with hands-on experience and practical skills that can be immediately put to use in the real world. Our team is dedicated to your success and will provide personalised support throughout your training.

Training Up offers students the choice to enrol in 3 different Grid-connect PV Systems courses.
