Access to resources is through online links only. Some of the books cannot be downloaded. A hard copy is available on request on the condition that the student pays for postage (registered optional) and administration. This course is not available to students without a good internet connection.

BOOKS/RESOURCES REQUIRED

A soft copy of the learner resource book or lecture notes is free, and we will provide it as a Google Drive link only and not as a PDF.
If you require a hard copy, a printing charge of $150 for each copy and a $100 binding charge per copy will be collected from the student.
Australian standards cannot be printed due to copyright restrictions but are available for borrowing for the duration of the course with a refundable deposit of $250 per copy. Soft copies are free to use on Ausinet laptops while in class.

You don’t need to purchase these standards upfront but its recommended to have access to the following:
AS/NZS 5033:2021
AS/NZS 5139:2019
AS/NZS 4509
AS/NZS 3000:2018
AS/NZS 4777.1:2016
AS/NZS 4777.2:2020
AS/NZS 1170.2

OTHER REQUIREMENTS

You will need to get access to the following standards :
AS/NZS 5139 – Electrical installations – Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment
AS/NZS 4777.1 – Grid connection of energy systems via inverters – Part 1: Installation requirements
AS/NZS 5033 – Installation and safety requirements for photovoltaic (PV) arrays
You can borrow them from our library in Darwin while you are in class or buy them for yourself from the SAI Global website or Techstreet website. For reference, the standards might also be available from some libraries, institutions and industry associations.
You will need :
A wired headset or headphones
A laptop
A notepad
A pen
You will also need to have an email address and a reliable internet connection in order to complete the course online.
If you decide to come to class, enclosed footwear must be worn at all times when you are on the premises.

COURSE OUTCOME

You will receive a Nationally Recognised Certificate upon successful course completion.


After you have successfully completed this course, you will be able to apply for your solar accreditation at the Clean Energy Council of Australia (CEC). You must hold grid-connect solar accreditation before you can apply for battery storage accreditation. You can find more information about the cec accreditation application process, requirements and fees on the Clean Energy Council website.

CREDIT TRANSFER

Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.

RPL

“Recognition of prior learning also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person’s current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired.

This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for working people who are considering doing a course. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.

The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. Please contact the office for an RPL kit.”
