    How to get a PV GreenCard

    First of all, it is not the installer who gets the GreenCard, but the installation. The installer can get the qualification to issue a PV GreenCard. For that, he / she has to participate in an Assessment to prove his / her installation skills and to become an officially certified PV GreenCard installer. Once that happens, the installer can start issuing PV GreenCards.

    PV GreenCard Assessment Procedure

    The PV GreenCard Assessment takes two days and consists of two parts: a Theoretical Assessment and a Practical Assessment. In both parts, the competence of installers to correctly install PV systems is tested and candidates have to attain a minimum of 80%.

    The Theoretical Assessment is a written exam. Participants have 4 hours to answer questions on:

    • Electrical  and solar basics
    • Site Assessment
    • Solar PV System Design
    • Solar PV Installation
    • SANS 10142
    • PV System inspection and testing procedure

    The Practical Assessment takes place on the second day. The participants have to prove competency in the following fields:

    • Quality installation
    • DC and AC circuits incl. safety components
    • Wiring of distribution board
    • Testing (e.g. Insulation resistance)
    • Material List
    • Workplace safety and PPE
    • Appropriate use of tools and materials
