My sincere appreciation for the outstanding experience and welcoming environment at Solar Training Centre. The curriculum's depth was impressive. Craig and Steve's expertise was invaluable. The training directly addressed the industry needs, making it an excellent choice for anyone interested in solar energy. I also want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Caz for her unwavering encouragement and support throughout and beyond the training sessions. Her dedication has been invaluable to me.

I recently completed the Battery Short Course and I must say it exceeded all my expectations. The course content was comprehensive, engaging, and incredibly informative. The instructor Josh was knowledgeable and made complex concepts easy to understand. The hands-on activities and practical exercises were invaluable in solidifying the learning. I highly recommend the Battery Short Course to anyone looking to deepen their understanding of batteries and energy storage. Five stars all the way!Thanks to Steve and Caz as well

I did my solar designer course here. The course was well structured. There were plenty of practical application discussions and explanations by the trainer. Caz was also very helpful from first call to getting certificate and even after finishing the course as well. Can recommend 100% if you are looking for solar training.

I have just completed the Off Grid Design and Install training at the Melbourne centre. Steve and Kaz have created a bussiness that focuses on the training outcome rather than just making people accredited, there is a real feeling of passion about the whole training centre.Josh Sheppard was our trainer and he has a very in depth knowledge of designing and installing off grid systems, he is a current installer, has real life relevant experience and is very up to date with products and solutions. He was great with delivery of information and able to show real answers to any question or topic raised.This business has forged relationships with relevant suppliers and has a huge suite of working products to install as part of the practical sessions. We had the pleasure of installing a brand new Selectronics invertor and set up from scratch; complete with working batteries.Off Grid heavyweights Selectronics and Powerplus Energy support this centre and attend training sessions to offer information and support to participants.If you want to learn about designing and installing a system and not just getting accredited then look no further and sign up.

These guys are the real deal, our teacher was an old boy who had been there and back and had the t-shirt to prove it.They taught us in a thorough and enjoyable way and I gained all the technical and practical know-how I was looking for.We had lunch put on for us 3 times the week and coffee and snacks galore.The big unis and tafe's may be cheaper but you get what you pay for. These guys are the bestHighly recommend

Knowledgeable trainers, great facilities and helpful staff.Pracs used relevant products that you'd use in the the real world. I left both courses (grid connect solar and battery) I've done to date with the knowledge and tools to complete excellent designs and installs in the real world.Caz was very helpful getting me signed up and started and the team was very prompt in helping with any LMS issues I had.Steve, Craig and Joel where all fantastic and happy to help with any questions.Highly recommended and I will be coming back here to do the standalone systems course

Steve was a fantastic solar course facilitator for a bunch of female plumbing apprentices - myself included! He is very knowledgeable on the industry and friendly and enthusiastic to boot.The day went very quickly and we learned what we were there for. The whole process was quick and painless from enrolment to the course itself and the assessments were the same.Solar Training Centre is highly recommended!
