Released on: October 05, 2011, 4:55 pm
Able Skills has opened a new solar photovoltaic (PV) centre at
its headquarters in Dartford.
The new centre has bigger roofs and the latest technology, providing students with a
more realistic learning experience and helping Able Skills deliver the latest solar
PV qualifications. The investment in new solar PV centre demonstrates the company's
dedication to renewable energy training, with Able Skills committed to teaching the
next generation of engineers.
With the growing popularity in renewable energies and the cost of such technologies
becoming more and more affordable, the demand for Solar Photovoltaic installer and
maintenance qualified electricians is forever increasing. Able Skills now provided
two courses, one catering for fully qualified electricians and the other catering
for fully qualified domestic electrical installers.
The City & Guilds 2399 (11-12) is a Photovoltaic training programme aimed at any
qualified electricians. To apply for this course, applicants would be required to
hold a C&G 2330 Level 2 & 3 with the 2391 Inspection & Testing or a City & Guilds
NVQ Level3 or a Term served validation from a company stating their work and time
served as a qualified electrician.
Alternatively, interested parties can undertake the NICEIC route which is aimed
towards Domestic Electrical Installers. Able Skills currently offers a package deal
that will take applicants from the very beginning, right the way through to becoming
a fully domestic Solar PV installer.
Gary Measures, Director of Able Skills said: "Able Skills are proud to open this
new cutting-edge centre which demonstrates our commitment to renewable energy
training. With bigger roofs and better facilities, students will benefit from a more
realistic learning experience."
As well as the solar PV courses, Able Skills offers a number of other programmes for
those interested in working within the renewable energy industry. With a purpose
built Renewable Technology centre, Able Skills is perfectly equipped to demonstrate
every aspect of renewable technology for those on electrical courses or plumber courses, including

rainwater harvesting and wind turbines among others.
