The PV GreenCard training accommodates candidates with or without solar PV knowledge

Solar photovoltaic installer (pv greencard)

The course provides our candidates with all they need to know about solar PV systems. This 5 days course covers all the key topics to prepare the candidate to operate as a PV installer.  As a PV installer you will be in a position to develop, develop, install and commission PV systems. Our course was developed and aligns with the curriculum of the SAPVIA 5-day Solar PV Installer course. We will therefore fully prepare you for the PV GreenCard solar PV Assessment.

Duration: 5 Days
