The establishment of the SMA Solar Academy training facility at the SMA Sydney premises can be attributed to recent demand for increased availability of solar training courses.
The SMA Solar Academy holds regular Sydney-based training sessions, and also offers numerous training courses across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific through the Solar Academy Roadshow. Free training courses are available at a basic, advanced or expert level, and courses can be tailored to suit specific individual needs.
The SMA Solar Academy provides a wide range of courses covering on-grid and off-grid connections, communication and monitoring systems, as well as small wind power systems.
Incorporating the latest industry trends, new developments and current topics within the field, SMA Solar Academy training courses are informative, giving relevant qualifications for long-term success in the ever-changing solar industry.Article continues below…
The courses are suitable for installers as well as dealers, distributors and retailers of SMA products across a range of disciplines and levels — from telephone sales staff to procurement personnel.
For example, a basic inverter course at the Solar Academy allows students to develop necessary knowledge of inverter theory, as well as gain an introduction to the electronics and design behind SMA Grid Connect inverters.
At the Solar Academy, product trainer Jason Keller aims to enhance the knowledge of professionals in the area of grid-connect inverters, while off-grid specialist Wilhelm van Butselaar provides extensive learning in the field of remote and hybrid systems.
