Event description


Missed the last commercial solar installation course? We're hosting the next one on July 18th!

Our last event was a sell-out and we had a great response from our attendees, with 92% highly recommending the course to friends and colleagues.

All attendees receive 40 CPD points and $200 off towards Greenwood Solution's grid application, grid protection or injection testing on their next commercial project!

We work closely with solar businesses to help them overcome the obstacles of a commercial install which involve a certain complexity, scale, and understanding that isn't immediately obvious unless one has had experience with these larger systems previously.

We are installers ourselves and understand the complete process from start to finish and have the knowledge and resources necessary to complete large-scale projects and it is this valuable information is what we pass on at these events.

Is this course right for you?

If you want to be able to:

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

Then this course is for you.

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

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

How will the course benefit you?

82% of attendees from our last event said they would be more confident to run a commercial install after attending our course which is fantastic.

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

- Network with local installers
- Form important business relationships with other installers
- Get your required CEC Continuous Professional Development Points
- Develop your relationship with Greenwood Solutions

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

Greenwood Solutions training events are accredited by the Clean Energy Council and all attendees will receive 40 CPD points to put towards their total of 100 points for the year.

The commercial install course is basically a step by step process; guiding you through each stage so you have the assurance you need to take on your next project.

Here at Greenwood Solutions, we are passionate about helping solar businesses and installers to excel in the industry and we believe there is enough work for everyone with the booming use of renewable energy over the past few years.

We are here to help you through the transition, even after the training! With our knowledgeable team and the wide range of services available we can assist you in making your first commercial install a success!
