GSES is well connected internationally to various solar industry networks and professional bodies. Their courses are widely recognized and respected in the industry. The qualified candidates are recommended to industries for placement after successful completion of training.

Training offerings

Solar Energy training offering is broadly classified into three categories:

  • Professional Advantage Training
  • Technical Advantage Training
  • Business Advantage Training

Professional Advantage Training

Professional Advantage training is available to candidates for engineering service delivery at a professional level in the solar industry.

Assessment outcomes for these courses are rigorous and match the level of training required internationally to attain this level of professional qualification. Certificates of Attainment are issued on successful completion of these courses.

Professional Advantage Training is:

  • A premier training and offers a guaranteed ticket into the solar industry worldwide.
  • Equal to the requirements of a professional qualification in Australia.

Technical Advantage Training

Technical Advantage training courses represent vocational education training. These courses deliver professional development to industry members ranging from renewable energy corporations’ personnel to skilled or semi-skilled technicians.

Technical Advantage training courses provide a Certificate of Completion to participants who have attended the entire duration of the course and has successfully completed an assessment task or process based on this material.

Technical Advantage Training provides:

  • Professional development for Solar Professionals.
  • Gives in-depth training on specific, specialised areas of the industry.

Business Advantage Training

Courses undertaken at this training level include practical and technical industry concepts and practices. These concepts fall outside the Professional Advantage and Technical Advantage courses. This training will not be assessed; a Certificate of Attendance may be issued for these courses.

Business Advantage Training:

  • Information for those entering the solar industry
  • Provides introductory training on areas of the renewable energy industry with a view to increase employment opportunities.

Course Accreditation

The certification of solar courses is generally implemented at country level by the respective authorized certification body/agency of the respective countries. Therefore, a certified person in one country may not be legally certified for another country.

However, there are very few international training providers like GSES whose courses qualify international competency standards.

  • GSES develops and delivers solar PV training courses in accordance with international competency standards and accreditation requirements.
  • GSES India is affiliated to Skill Council for Green Jobs (SCGJ) under National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), government of India as a training partner and provides trainings under the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF).
  • Within Australia (Head Office), GSES is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), responsible for development and delivery of Solar PV accreditation training both in its own national and international competency standards.
  • The courses are fully recognized by the Clean Energy Council (CEC) and the Certified courses and systems are licensed to and used by Australian TAFE institutions and private training providers.
