Solar PV 

NICEIC Certification’s Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Qualification has been developed for individuals who wish to demonstrate competence to work on the installation of Solar Photovoltaic Systems.

What is the Solar Photovoltaic Qualification?

The Solar Photovoltaic qualification is designed to provide experienced electrical engineers the necessary skills for basic design, installation and service of Solar Photovoltaic systems and delivers a certificate of competence for individuals who wish to join the NICEIC MCS Installer Scheme.

Areas covered include:-

  • Environmental background
  • Different types of solar PV technology
  • Design and specification of solar PV systems
  • Installation of solar PV systems
  • Commissioning and testing systems
  • Maintenance of solar PV systems
  • Government grants and funding bodies

Pre-Requisites apply

All the NICEIC environmental and related technology courses have been developed around a modular approach to minimise disruption to installers, and maximise the benefit to installers;

Why do I need to be qualified?

NICEIC has been granted a licence to run a MCS Installer Scheme so that registered installers can provide access to Government grants for their customers.

The Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) designed the MCS to create criteria that installers and/or product manufacturers can follow to install environmental technologies. This should in turn provide a better service for consumers and ensure that the grant money available is spent in the most efficient way.

Also to carry out work relating to Building Regulations F, G, J, L and P in dwellings in England and Wales contractors must demonstrate competence in order to either:

  • gain registration with a body approved by Government (CLG), such as the NICEIC Building Regulations Scheme, to enable self-certification of work that must be notified to Building Control
  • notify your all work in line with the requirements of the Approved Documents of the Building Regulations to the Building Control office of the relevant local council where the work is carried out.
