Great course guys. For a novice at solar I learnt an awful lot on this course. The theory and the practical was just the right mix to give us a feel for how it's done.Would strongly recommend these guys if you are thinking of going into solar.

Could not fault this course, The trainer Josh had a sound knowledge of Off Grid systems his experience as a current installer showed in class, there was not a question he couldn’t answer.In saying that it was how he interpreted his Knowledge to us which made the course so special.Been an Installer myself I would recommend this course heavily.The reason for that is, it was so hands on, you leave the class and you will understand all aspects of you Off Grid Install as they cover all wiring rules and wiring methods for installation.This course even takes it one step further, the course gives you really good ideas in how to operate in the Off Grid Sector in regards to product selection and the importance of design.If I reflect on my experience their, the most important thing I got from the course was the interaction with Josh and my fellow classmates who are all leaders in there industry, you will build friendships and bonds that will build you as a person but most importantly build your business.

Great course. Steve looks after you to make sure you get the best of the knowledge provided by the teacher. Joel knows what is talking about and share a lot of his experience so everything makes sense. He takes the time do make sure nobody is left behind.

You guys have been very helpful during both solar and battery design courses and because of these courses, I have recently secured a job in renewable energy industry as a “Solar Design Engineer”, and when I mentioned these courses during the interviews, it increased my chances of getting the job substantially.

    Can't recommend Caz and her team and Solar Training Centre enough! Great organisation, in-depth and hands-on experience learning! I did the course myself and put a couple of my A grades through them as well.

    “Just wanted to take some time to personally thank everyone there especially Craig. The course was very informative and everyone was extremely accommodating with guiding me through certain parts of the course. I appreciate the extensions given as it is sometimes hard juggling a business as well. Great course and will be recommending to anyone interested.”
