4 Weeks Professional Advantage Course on Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems Design, Installation & Maintenance

Registration Open

The GSES Professional Advantage Course on Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System Design, Installation & Maintenance provides detailed technical information and step-by-step methodology for design, installation, testing, commissioning and maintenance of grid-connected and off-grid solar PV systems.

The course covers fundamental  principles behind working of a solar PV system, use of different components in a system, methodology of sizing these components to create a well functioning solar PV system, and methodology of evaluating financial performance of a solar PV system.

The course also includes a description of procedures to conduct site surveys  for system sizing and installation, and  performing testing, commissioning, maintenance activities in accordance with relevant international standards relating to grid-connected and off-grid solar PV systems. 

This course is designed ideally for professionals looking to enter solar industry, or interact with solar projects in current line of work. However, professionals from a range of backgrounds can also use this course to gain entry in India’s booming solar industry, include final year engineering/science students. The course has been developed by GSES using international best practice materials and is reviewed regularly to ensure high quality and globally current training materials.  The course is backed up with rigorous assessment framework thus giving you a qualification certificate which is recognized internationally

Course Outline and Training Methodology:

The course will be delivered through power point presentations, illustrative reading materials, video clips, working examples, exercises and practical activities. Working exercise and assessment will be carried out at the end of each topic and final assessment will be done on the last day of the course.  All assessment will be carried out through an online training platform. Students are requested to carry laptop during the entire training period of 4 weeks. Broadband internet connection will be provided at the training centre to access any online training material.
