(off-grid, grid-tied, commercial)
The PV Designer courses provides detailed technical knowledge and understanding of Photovoltaic (PV). Participants not only learn how the single components work but also how they merge together in a system and what is necessary to design a well-balanced PV system. The course is an advanced training course. Basic knowledge and pre-knowledge on general planning and design of PV systems is an entry requirement. The theoretical content is supported by case studies, group works and activities to make the training as interactive and effective as possible.
Participants: PV planners, construction site managers and engineers
Duration: 2 to 3 days
maxx PV Mounter
Within the 2-day installations course the participants learn what is important during installations, how to handle the panels, read installation plans and wiring diagrams, correctly install components, use tools and move on the roof. The installation is done up to testing and inverter commissioning. We train a complete installation including general safety requirements, steps of PV installations on different roof types, site preparation, module mounting, wiring and inverter commissioning. The participants learng how to work on PV installations sides guided by professional installers.
Participants: PV installers and craftsmen, unskilled construction side worker
