By the end of the course you will have learned how to customise solar PV systems to suit customers' specific requirements. You will be able to compare different components and configurations, offering your customers the most precise analysis.

You will have produced a professional client report with precise data and exciting graphics, including a photorealistic representation of a property with PV modules added. This will include an economic analysis report with a variety of outputs. We can also discuss your ongoing projects.

Take a look at our sample PV*SOL and PV*SOL premium course contents.

What you get from attending one of our courses:

  • A certificate from The Solar Design Company.
  • A USB with useful documents relating to the course and space to save your projects made on the day.
  • Ffluency in using the software from start to finish.
  • Refreshments and lunch.

Our trainers have many years of experience in teaching PV*SOL and PV theory, as well as technical authoring in the renewable energy industry.

You may also be interested in our two complementary courses, MCS Shading and Solar Surveying and Key PV Concepts.

Key PV Concepts covers the foundational knowledge necessary to use PV*SOL, such as solar geometry; how inverters work; the area utilisation method for frame mounted systems and why shading matters.

MCS Shading and Solar Surveying is a one-day practical course where you will get to grips with the MCS shading methodology and become confident in conducting site surveys.
