Event description


Victron Energy Hands-On Training

Sponsored by Fronius Australia

(50 CPD Points)

Get hands-on experience with Australia’s only live off-grid Victron Energy training system.

Unique 2 day course provides an introduction to Victron Energy products software and resources for Automotive, Marine and Off-Grid, with the goal of getting you started designing and quoting your own Victron battery storage systems. It will be valuable for everyone from battery retailers to experienced solar installers or electricians wanting to get started with Victron Energy and selling battery storage products and systems.

Day 1 is a small, shared classroom for theory and broad system knowledge in two different areas.

Choose which Day 1 theory days suits you best:

  • Victron Energy Hands-On Training - Day 1 Classroom (Automotive/Marine)

  • Victron Energy Hands-On Training - Day 1 Classroom (Off-Grid/Grid Connected)

NOTE: You can choose to do either, or both, of the Day 1 theory courses, but a minimum of at least one must be completed prior to attending the Day 2 workshop class.

Day 2 is a one-on-one workshop day for hand’s on learning on a live system, so you can put the classroom theory into practice. You will work on our live training system that can demonstrate both off-grid and grid-tied energy storage with:

  • DC solar with MPPT

  • AC coupled solar with Fronius PV inverter

  • Off-grid or grid connected

  • Lead or lithium batteries

  • Battery monitoring

  • Inter-device wireless comms networking

  • Remote System Monitoring

  • Product parameter set up software

  • Product commissioning

  • Sizing system components for quoting

NOTE: After the course, you will be given access to remotely monitor the training system’s performance and history via the free Victron VRM portal.
