The Solar Victoria Technical Mentoring and Support initiative seeks to advance electricians’ technical knowledge of solar and home battery systems and will be available across regional and metropolitan Victoria until end-December, or until funded places are fully allocated.
The program is part of the state government’s $11 million commitment to train its solar workforce, a bid to secure ongoing skilled workers for the sector. The mentoring will be delivered face-to-face and on site by industry experts from the Institute of Electrotechnology, the National Electrical and Communications Association and TechSafe Australia.
“We are committed to developing, upskilling and supporting workers in the renewable sector, and want more licensed electrical inspectors to feel comfortable in taking on solar work,” Solar Victoria CEO Stan Krpan said.
Victoria’s Solar Homes program, launched in 2018, aims to install solar on 770,000 homes, boost solar hot water-system installation by 60,000 and support the addition of batteries to 10,000 homes over a ten year period.
