City & Guilds 2399-11 Solar PV Training Courses

City & Guilds 2399-11 Solar PV Training
2399- Unit 201 (ET001) Know the fundamental working principles, installation options and regulatory requirements for micro-renewable energy and water-conservation technologies.

Level: 3
Credit value: 2
NDAQ number: K/602/3138

Unit aim
The purpose of this unit is to enable learners to develop a fundamental knowledge of micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies.

The aims of this unit are:

To allow learners to develop the knowledge required to be able to communicate with others in relation to the fundamental working principles, potential to install and regulatory requirements for micro-renewable and water conservation technologies
To prepare eligible learners to progress to the specialist knowledge and competence units for the installation, commissioning, handover, inspection, service and maintenance of micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies

Learning Outcomes
There are four learning outcomes to this unit. The learner will be able to:

  • Know the fundamental working principles of micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies
  • Know the fundamental requirements of building location/building features for the potential to install micro-renewable energy and water conservation systems to exist
  • Know the fundamental regulatory requirements relating to micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies
  • Know the typical advantages and disadvantages associated with micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies

Assessment
This unit will be assessed by an on-line multiple-choice e-volve test (2399-201).

Training Start Times: 9.00am to 5.00pm

 

2399 Unit 311 (ET002SPV) Know the requirements to install, commission and handover small scale solar photovoltaic systems

Level: 3
Credit value: 4
NDAQ number: D/602/3086

Unit aim
The purpose and aim of this unit is to enable learners to develop the underpinning knowledge required prior to progressing to assessment of occupational competence.

The unit focuses upon the knowledge required to plan and prepare for, install (including testing and commissioning) and handover of grid connected solar photovoltaic systems that are within the scope of Engineering Recommendation G83/1 with an electrical output of up to 5 kilowatt peak (kWp) connected to both single and three-phase installations. The unit also includes fundamental design awareness and component selection outcomes but does not include detailed design.

Learning outcomes
There are twelve learning outcomes to this unit. The learner will:

  • Know the health and safety risks and safe systems of work associated with solar photovoltaic system installation work
  • Know the requirements of the relevant regulations/ standards relating to practical installation, testing and commissioning activities for solar photovoltaic system installation work
  • 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 hand over solar photovoltaic systems

The outcomes of this unit are aligned to the relevant solar photovoltaic installation (within the scope of Engineering Recommendation G83/1) minimum technical competence knowledge requirements for the following schemes:

  • Building Regulations Competent Person Schemes (England and Wales)
  • Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
  • Certifier of Construction Scheme (Scotland)

Assessment
This unit will be assessed by an on-line multiple-choice e-volve  test.

 

2399- Unit 312 (ET003SPV) Install, commission and handover small scale solar photovoltaic systems

Level: 3
Credit value: 2
NDAQ number: L/602/3083

The unit focuses upon the occupational competence required to plan and prepare for, install (including testing and commissioning) and handover of grid connected solar photovoltaic systems that are within the scope of Engineering Recommendation G83/1 with an electrical output of up to 5 kilowatt peak (kWp) connected to both single and three-phase installations.

Learning Outcomes
There are five learning outcomes to this unit. The learner will be able to:

  • Plan and prepare for the installation of a solar photovoltaic system
  • Install solar photovoltaic system components
  • Inspect and test a new solar photovoltaic system installation
  • Commission a new solar photovoltaic system installation
  • Hand over a new solar photovoltaic system installation

Assessment
This unit will be assessed by a practical assignment.
