To help with the enrolment process print your timetable, or keep the window open, so that you can refer back to it for your course (program) code, course (program) name, and the Course Reference Numbers (CRNs).
Students can apply for CEC PV accreditation once they have successfully completed the units:
- UEENEEK135 A Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems
- UEENEEK148A Install, configure and commission LV grid connected PV power systems
- UEENEEK125A Solve basic problems in PV energy apparatus
Students can exit the program after completing these 3 units. Recognition for prior Learning may be available.
Entry Requirements / How to Apply
Applicants must hold and electrical license and/or a Certificate Ill in Electro technology UEE30811 or equivalent.
To study any course at CIT (excluding degrees and non-accredited training) you must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
Literacy Skills Information
We suggest that you will need Australian Core Skills Framework levels of at least 2 across reading, writing, learning, oral communication and, depending on your program of study, numeracy skills to successfully complete this program. If you do not have this level, you can still enrol and seek support to improve your skills or you may prefer to begin with a lower level program, or enrol in the Certificate I in Skills for Vocational Pathways (FSK10213) to develop your literacy skills. Please visit Foundation Skills.
Qualifications at CIT are regularly updated or replaced to meet current industry needs and maximise your employment opportunities. If this occurs while you are part way through a qualification, you may need to vary your learning to meet the new national requirements. CIT will aim to make this as smooth as possible for you.
To ensure positive outcomes for all students, CIT may need to cancel or change classes at short notice. CIT will make every effort to inform students as soon as changes are made and will also make every effort to offer alternative arrangements for students to meet the requirements of the subject and complete their qualification. In an unfortunate instance when this cannot be met, you will receive a full refund. Please ensure you maintain current contact details via CIT Self Service or by contacting CIT Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
