Are you a qualified electrician looking to upskill or an existing licensed electrical inspector looking to increase your understanding of solar and battery inspections?
Funded by Solar Victoria with input and expertise from industry, Future Energy Skills in partnership with Solar Victoria and Energy Safe Victoria are developing two courses to encourage more qualified electricians to become LEIs and to build skills and capability for solar and new energy technologies. Pilots are scheduled to take place in February and March 2022.
About the Training
The suite of learning and assessment materials will include interactive, visual media and graphic design content for the following skill sets.
Skill Set 1 – Electrical inspector requirements, installation fundamentals, and inspecting and testing
This is aimed at upskilling electricians to become licensed electrical inspectors. It will give them the skills and knowledge to carry out general electrical inspections, and to undertake the Energy Safe Victoria required “G Class” assessments.
It will also equip participants with the skills and knowledge to perform electrical inspections accurately and competently in the field.
Skill Set 2 – Inspect and test electricity generation systems
This is aimed at upskilling LEIs and auditors to become specialists in the inspection of new generation systems – especially solar and battery installations.
It will equip participants with the skills and knowledge to perform electrical inspections accurately and competently on new generation systems in the field. This is a wonderful opportunity to upskill while also contributing to the industry by providing feedback on the course through an evaluation process as part of the pilot.
