The **GSES Grid Connected Photovoltaic Systems Design
Only Course** is designed for engineers\, electricians or those who
hold equivalent basic electrical units\, who wish to learn to design grid
-connected photovoltaic systems. This course comprises online theory and a
ssessments which can be completed at students’ own pace. The course is o
nline only.

**Prerequisites:** To receive a Statement
of Attainment upon completion of the course\, students must hold either:<
/p>\n

An unrestricted electrical licence issued by an Australian state o
r territory

Competency in the following units as evidenced by Statem
ents of Attainment or authenticated USI transcript:

- UEENEEE1 04A
- UEENEEG106A or UEENEEE108
- UEENEEE137A

If students do not meet the above requirement\, but wish to apply for CEC accreditation upon completion of the course\, they must demonstrate suffi cient prior electrical knowledge through either:

\nAn electrical eng
ineering degree recognised by the Washington Accord

A certificate of
completion for the GSES Electrical Basics examination \;(currently on
ly available to engineers)

Students who do not meet any of the pre requisites described are warned that there is heavy use of computer\, calc ulator and mathematical equations. For this reason it is strongly recommen ded that students have prior knowledge of mathematics\, as well as compute r and calculator skills.

\n**Outcome of successful completion:
** \;Certificate of completion equivalent to the following Unit
s of Competency and\, along with an electrical engineering degree or certi
ficate of completion for the Electrical Basics examination\, eligible to a
pply for CEC Grid-connect Design provisional accreditation (refer to the C
EC for any additional requirements).

UEENEEK125A: Solve basic prob
lems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems

UEENEEK135A: Desig
n grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems

**Require
d materials: \;**Students are supplied with the publication&nbs
p\;Grid-Connected PV Systems Design and Installation 8th Edition \;aft
er enrolment at no additional cost. Students are responsible for obtaining
current copies of the following Australian Standards\, available for purc
hase from the \;SAI Global website \;or Techstreet website\, and a
