Once you have completed the required training, you can apply for provisional accreditation.
Application Submission + Application Fee + Online Assessments
To be approved for Provisional Accreditation, you will need to submit an application including required documentation, pay an application fee ($165 + GST) and complete relevant online assessment(s).
When submitting your application, you will need to provide:
Upon approval of your application: You will be given limited access to the Installer Portal to complete assigned online assessments.
The online assessments are designed to verify the knowledge of an applicant in their chosen accreditation pathway. The knowledge tested is based on the units of competencies, delivered by an authorised Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
You have 30 days to complete the online assessment.
Upon successful completion of the online assessment, you will be awarded Provisional Accreditation and an Accreditation Number.
Provisional Accreditation permits you to commence work within the parameters of your chosen accreditation, allowing you to gain experience and build on your knowledge. Installers/Designers can only hold one provisional accreditation at a time. Additional components can be added once an individual holds full accreditation.
Note: If you have applied for a Design Only accreditation, you have now completed all requirements and will be awarded Full Accreditation upon payment of the accreditation fee ($550 + GST).
Upgrading to Full Accreditation requires you to complete a practical assessment for review and pay an accreditation fee ($550 + GST).
Practical Assessment submission + Accreditation Fee
You must submit a practical assessment for review before your three-month provisional accreditation expires. This is to demonstrate skills in installing solar or battery systems and will require you to submit photographic evidence showing one of your first solar and/or battery installations.
Once you have submitted your practical assessment and paid the accreditation fee, your assessment will be sent to our technical team for review. Once approved you will be awarded full accreditation.
The upgrade application form is available in the login area.
