  • Know the fundamental differences between a.c and d.c circuits within solar photovoltaic systems
  • Know the purpose of solar photovoltaic system components
  • Know the types, silicon characteristics and typical conversion efficiencies of solar photovoltaic modules
  • Know the fundamental design principles used to determine solar photovoltaic system module array size and position requirements.
  • Know the preparatory work required for solar photovoltaic system installation work
  • Know the layouts and the requirements for installing solar photovoltaic module arrays
  • Know solar photovoltaic system d.c and a.c circuit installation layouts within the scope of the relevant Engineering Recommendation for grid tied systems
  • Know solar photovoltaic system protection techniques and components
  • Know the requirements to test and commission solar photovoltaic systems
  • Know the requirements to handover solar photovoltaic systems
  • Know how to plan and prepare for the installation of a solar photovoltaic system
  • Know how to install solar photovoltaic system components
  • Know how to inspect and test a new solar photovoltaic system installation
