Event description


Greenwood Solutions Commercial Solar Installation Training in Association with OzExpress

Melbourne based renewable energy company Greenwood Solutions and leading national wholesaler OzExpress have joined forces to bring solar training to Brisbane!

Greenwood Solutions currently run a successful training programme in Melbourne, with 92% of past customers highly recommending their services to friends and colleagues.

Why we developed our training programme

The solar industry is booming

The solar industry in Australia is booming and we want to make sure that installers don’t get left behind due to a lack of knowledge about commercial projects.

Here at Greenwood Solutions, we believe that although the solar industry is highly competitive there is enough room for everyone that has a genuine passion for the industry and wants to make a difference.

Lack of viable training options

In Australia as a whole, we have been disappointed with the level of training services available to installers.

As we watched the solar industry grow over the years, it became apparent that good installers were getting left behind as they tried to compete for big projects without the correct training.

Using our hands-on experience to help others grow

In response to the lack of adequate educational resources for commercial solar, we developed a training programme that is designed for installers by installers!

Our team at Greenwood Solutions have been in the solar industry for a long time and have gone through the processes of moving from domestic to commercial installs. We, therefore, have developed strong procedures to follow from start to finish and have learnt from our mistakes so you don’t have to.

Our aim is to help solar installers and companies to overcome the obstacles of a commercial project, which involve a certain complexity, scale and understanding that isn’t immediately obvious unless one has had significant experience with larger systems before.

In addition, OzExpress will aid in making the correct selection in regards to solar panels and Secondary Grid Protection Boards and present a specific Queensland perspective in regards to the choice and installation of solar panels.

Is this course right for you?

The event is tailored at both accredited and non-accredited installers that need to make the move from the domestic to commercial sphere, or just want to brush up on current legislation and on-site procedures.

It allows installers to connect with our wealth of experience and existing products and services which provide installers with the confidence and knowledge they need to win large commercial projects and execute them successfully.

If you want to be able to:

- Take on large commercial projects
- Gain the knowledge and confidence necessary to make the leap into commercial solar
- Improve your processes and procedures on the work site

Then this course is for you!

How will the course benefit you?

82% of attendees from our last event said they would be confident enough to run a commercial install without further assistance after attending our course.

In addition to the information presented and gained from these events, the course is a great opportunity to:

- Network with local Brisbane and Queensland based installers
- Form important business relationships with other installers
- Get your required 40 CEC Continuous Professional Development Points
- Develop your relationship with Greenwood Solutions and Oz Express

What does the course cover?

After we received valuable feedback from our last training session we have changed the emphasis on the format to a more AC centric one.

We have now included more details in the following areas:

1. Grid Applications; requirements from Ergon and Energex
2. Secondary Protection; cabling requirements
3. AC cabling calculations and AC procedures

Active discussion is encouraged during the presentation, in order to share opinions and learn about past experiences and an audience question and answer session is included.
