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 II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways (FSK20119) 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.

UEERE5001 Design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems
CIT Code: ELEC1356 Description: This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems.
This unit applies to a person with a sound knowledge of the components and different system configurations of battery storage systems for grid-connected PV systems and suitable energy management strategies that can be applied to the site where a system can be installed.
A person competent in this unit will be able to design a system, which includes calculating and selecting the correct sized equipment so the system output performance meets the client specific requirements within the guidelines of relevant industry standards, regulations and manufacturer requirements.
The unit involves designing a system taking into consideration all necessary work health and safety requirements relevant for the selected system and documenting the design including all calculations, equipment specifications and layouts.
Prerequisites: ELEC1095 UEENEEK135A Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems
UEERE4001 Install, maintain and fault find battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems
CIT Code: ELEC1357 Description: This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to safely and effectively install, maintain and fault find battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems.
A person competent in this unit will hold an unrestricted electrical licence issued in an Australian State or Territory and be able to install, maintain and fault find battery storage systems for grid-connected PV in accordance to relevant industry standards and regulations.
This unit is subject to the following requirements:
• Legislation, regulations, relevant industry standards and codes of practice for electrical work including specific work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) legislation and regulatory requirements
• Electrical licencing requirements – unrestricted electrical work
• Legislation, regulations, relevant industry standards and codes of practice for renewable energy.
There may be variations in these requirements across jurisdictions.
