GSES Solar Awareness For Tradespeople Short Course
The GSES Solar Awareness for Tradespeople online course is delivered by Global Sustainable Energy Solutions, an Australian leader in renewable energy engineering, training and consultancy specialising in photovoltaic technology.
Solar power systems are complex installations which include several components and a range of procedures. This interactive course is aimed at educating those with little to no solar experience on how to work safely on sites with a solar power system. The course covers the basic function and components of a solar power system, focusing on potential hazards to a tradesperson working on a site with a previously installed solar system.
It is important for engineers who design the solar systems to have a good understanding of potential risks and hazards during installation of new solar systems and the maintenance of an existing system. More information on different types of maintenance can be found in the Operations & Maintenance course.
