Participants can expect the following session times and learning outcomes:
AS/NZS 5033 2021 Update (25 minutes + 5 min Q & A)
Knowledge: Participants will gain a thorough overview of the incoming Australian Standard, AS/ NZS 5033 2021 in its Draft form.
Comprehension: Learners will appreciate opportunities present in early adoption of the Standard once published, as new design and installation flexibilities and options will become available.
Analysis: The session will reinforce the need for deeper scrutiny of the published document to remain compliant. Participants will increase their opportunity to engage with the document early, prior to implementation.
Create: Participant solar installers and designers will be now able to prepare for significant changes in their design and installation processes, as the new standard comes into effect.
AS/NZS 4777.2 2020 Update (15 minutes + 5 min Q&A)
Knowledge: Participants will gain a thorough overview of the incoming Australian Standard AS/NZS 4777.2 2020, recognising key features not present in the previous version.
Comprehension: Learners will understand key motivations for the changes, and how the features contained should enable higher Distributed Energy Resources (DER) penetration into the national grid.
Create: Participants will be able to craft documentation and or verbal explanations for customers outlining the new grid support features of inverters that comply with the new Australian Standard.
Common Compliance Problems in PV Installations (20 minutes + 5 min Q&A)
Knowledge: Participants will be able to list common examples of non-compliance in solar PV installations.
Comprehension: Learners will recognise and understand why these examples of non-compliance lead to poor outcomes for consumers and the industry as a whole.
Create: Participants armed with this information will be able to develop work processes to ensure that staff or sub-contractors don’t fall into poor installation habits.
Participants will gain an understanding of where they or their subcontractors may be going wrong with solar PV installations, and some ideas for how to become compliant. They will learn why these issues are important to address for the safety and quality of standards of the industry, flowing on to benefits for consumers.
