MITSkills Green Skills Bootcamp - Solar Systems and Energy Storage

MITSkills are offering an 12-week, Skills Bootcamp in Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems and Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS)

This qualification is aimed at experienced and practicing electrical operatives wishing to achieve a nationally recognised qualification in the installation and maintenance of small-scale grid tied photovoltaic systems and in the design, installation and commissioning of Electrical Energy Storage Systems (Battery Storage).

Applicants should be working within the electrical industry and ideally hold a formal level 3 electrical qualification (see entry criteria) and must hold a current BS 7671 qualification.

Programme

This course will involve a mix of classroom and simulated practical learning in our workshops.

The initial 30% of the course will include the Level 3 Award in the Design, Installation and Commissioning of Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS) qualification.

This will ensure that participants have the appropriate qualification, skills and knowledge to progress onto either our Solar PV level 3 qualification.

You will receive both practical and theoretical training in the following areas: Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems. • The solar resource • System configurations • Solar system design • Solar modules • Solar module mounting structures & arrays • Electrical wiring of the solar system and associated components * • Solar modules • Grid-connected solar systems • Charge controllers • Batteries • Practical PV wiring and maintenance sessions • Sizing solar systems • System testing & commissioning Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS). • Battery system modes • Battery system design • Legislation for a switched alternative source of energy • Battery packaged systems – coupling • Electrical wiring of the battery system and associated components • Grid-connected battery systems • Sizing battery systems • System testing & commissioning Additional Aims • Employability Skills • Workplace communication. • Decision making / problem solving. • CV Preparation. • Interview techniques. • Green Skills business advice.

 

Duration

This part-time 12 week programme (1 day per week), will combine classroom theory and practical learning.

Location

Classroom and practical training will take place in our MITSkills West Byfleet Green Skills centre.

MITSkills Green Skills Bootcamp - Electric Vehicle Charging Points and Energy Storage

MITSkills are offering a 12-week, Skills Bootcamp in Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment and Electrical Energy Storage Systems.

The course is aimed at practicing electricians wishing to upskill, to safely install and maintain Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment (EVCE) and achieve a nationally recognised qualification in the design, installation and commissioning of Electrical Energy Storage Systems (Battery Storage).

There is a key focus on the design of circuits to supply EVCE so it is heavily advised candidates review circuit design calculations before attendance.

The scenario-based assignment relies on essential knowledge of BS 7671 and design calculations for a successful outcome.

Applicants should be working within the electrical industry and ideally hold a formal level 3 electrical qualification (see entry criteria) and must hold a current BS 7671 qualification.
