Renewable energy has just been voted back onto the agenda and this time it’s here to stay. The world is going electric and here we offer the courses that will put you and your company at the front of the pack.

Expand your knowledge and skills to understand
energy audits, design and compliance in order to be ready to supply home owners and business with the equipment they need to both reduce their energy usage and generate their own cheaper clean energy.

These units are the pre-requisite qualification necessary to apply for provisional Grid Connect Design & Install of PV Systems Accreditation from the Clean Energy Council.

Accreditation is necessary to claim the benefit of trading in small technology certificates
which is effectively a regulated pollution producer’s subsidy towards renewable
energy generation.


Meet your trainer: Allen Burrows

Allen brings over 30 years of combined electrical and solar experience, entering the electrical industry as an apprentice in South Africa. A move to England saw Allen doing reticulation and cabling for the London Underground, before he came to Australia and worked on traffic signals, streetlights and electronic speed limits.
Allen’s next career move was into solar, where he worked for a number of companies in roles including installation team leader and supervisor in solar. He went on to start his own business which he has run for the past 8 years, doing solar design, sales, installation and maintenance.

“I’ve installed systems from 2 kilowatts to 200 kilowatts.”

A career highlight for Allen came at the end of a 200 kilowatt commercial installation, where he was able to stand on a 13 metre scissor lift and look down over the finished work.
The move to teaching happened when an injury caused Allen to rethink his heavy work schedule. Fast forward four years and Allen was teaching solar at NECA Education & Careers, developing a solar installation for the trade school and integrating it with a battery storage system.
“It’s good to see students that are really enthusiastic about doing good designs and doing good work.”
