The 1-day course is specially designed for installers who already have experience working in VEET/VEU/REES schemes. You will need to apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL) by providing us with a “Supervisor/ Third Party Form” (see downloads) signed by your supervisor confirming your existing skills and knowledge. We will assess your prior learning on registration for enrolment on training day – if you do not have enough prior learning to complete this course, you will need to enrol in the 2-day course  – please contact us for details.
