Solar Installation course overview

T1

The basic course T1 is built on the premise that the trainee has some foundational understanding of electrical concepts. It therefore introduces technical considerations, selection and application of components and correct procedures to be followed when designing (basic), installing, testing and commissioning, troubleshooting and maintaining basic solar PV systems.

Objective: T1 Provides competence in carrying out solar PV system installation work for single PV module or single battery DC system of up to 100 Wp.

T2

The intermediate course T2 expounds on the courses offered at the T1 level; introducing and expounding on concepts related to installation of multiple modules and batteries and the use of inverters in solar PV systems. It additionally goes into the relevant Kenyan policy, legal and regulatory frameworks for electrical installations; as a point of stepping up to T3.

Objective: T2 To provide competence in carrying out installation work for medium size PV systems that is multiple modules of up to 300Wp or multiple batteries, which may include an inverter.

T3

The advanced T3 course aims at providing a trainee who has already acquired solid technical expertise with the necessary skills to design, plan and install more complex systems.

Objective: T3 provides competence in carrying out solar PV system installation work for advanced solar installation, including grid connected and hybrid solar PV systems.

The particular candidate will be in a position to apply for Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) license in case they have the necessary qualifications as pertains to ERC's licensing information as listed below.
