City and Guilds 2372 Certificate in Installing and Testing Domestic Photovoltaic

Course overview:

This City and Guilds 2372 course is mainly aimed at qualified electricians who are seeking to obtain the skills to install grid connected domestic photovoltaic systems that are either integrated into the built environment, or ‘retro fitted’ to an existing domestic property.

City and Guilds 2372 has been developed specifically to address the underpinning knowledge and the specialist installation skills as required for domestic solar photovoltaic installations, and concentrates on typical commercially available PV panel installations. Other topics that are covered in the course will include the specific areas within the Building Regulations, MCS certification, FIT’s and other Codes of Practice related to PV systems.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change supports the recognition of providing the necessary training to ensure that the right qualified personnel are in place to meet the UK’s carbon reduction targets. Furthermore, Solar PV systems are seen as an essential part of the Coalition Government’s green energy policy.

Course pre-entry requirements
We thoroughly recommend that all delegates who are interested in attending this course are practicing electricians, preferably with experience in testing and inspecting, and therefore have the appropriate and required qualifications that relate to Solar PV installations. You will need as a minimum, an up to date 17th Edition qualification, City and Guilds 2382-10 or City and Guilds 2382-20 or equivalent - you will also need to have a qualification covering testing and initial verification – this would be evidenced by the delegate having successful passes in either City and Guilds 2392-10 or City and Guilds 2391.
