  4. 4. City & Guilds 2399-11 Synopsis Unit Summaries Unit 201 Know the fundamental working principles, installation options and regulatory requirements for micro-renewable energy and water Unit aim The purpose of this unit is to enable learners to develop a fundamental knowledge of microrenewable energy and water conservation technologies. The aims of this unit are: To allow learners to develop the knowledge required to be able to communicate with others in relation to the fundamental working principles, potential to install and regulatory requirements for micro-renewable and water conservation technologies To prepare eligible learners to progress to the specialist knowledge and competence units for the installation, commissioning, handover, inspection, service and maintenance of microrenewable energy and water conservation technologies. There are four learning outcomes to this unit. The learner will be able to: 1. Know the fundamental working principles of micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies 2. Know the fundamental requirements of building location/building features for the potential to install micro-renewable energy and water conservation systems to exist 3. Know the fundamental regulatory requirements relating to micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies 4. Know the typical advantages and disadvantages associated with micro-renewable energy and water conservation technologies Assessment This unit will be assessed by an on-line multiple-choice GOLA test (2399-201).Version: Issue 1.2 Page 4 of 8 Approved FD/SR/PLS © Trans-Euro Engineering Services Ltd.

  5. 5. City & Guilds 2399-11 Synopsis Unit 311 Know the requirements to install, commission and handover small scale solar photovoltaic systems Unit aim The purpose and aim of this unit is to enable learners to develop the underpinning knowledge required prior to progressing to assessment of occupational competence. The unit focuses upon the knowledge required to plan and prepare for, install (including testing and commissioning) and handover of grid connected solar photovoltaic systems that are within the scope of Engineering Recommendation G83/1 with an electrical output of up to 5 kilowatt peak (kWp) connected to both single and three–phase installations. The unit also includes fundamental design awareness and component selection. Learning outcomes There are twelve learning outcomes to this unit. The learner will: 1. Know the health and safety risks and safe systems of work associated with solar photovoltaic system installation work 2. Know the requirements of the relevant regulations/ standards relating to practical installation, testing and commissioning activities for solar photovoltaic system installation work 3. Know the fundamental differences between A.C and D.C circuits within solar photovoltaic systems 4. Know the purpose of solar photovoltaic system components 5. Know the types, silicon characteristics and typical conversion efficiencies of solar photovoltaic modules 6. Know the fundamental design principles used to determine solar photovoltaic system module array size and position requirements 7. Know the preparatory work required for solar photovoltaic system installation work 8. Know the layouts and the requirements for installing solar photovoltaic module arrays 9. Know solar photovoltaic system D.C and A.C circuit installation layouts within the scope of the relevant Engineering Recommendation for grid tied systems 10. Know solar photovoltaic system protection techniques and components 11. Know the requirements to test and commission solar photovoltaic systems 12. Know the requirements to hand over solar photovoltaic systems Assessment This unit will be assessed by an on-line multiple-choice GOLA test.Version: Issue 1.2 Page 5 of 8 Approved FD/SR/PLS © Trans-Euro Engineering Services Ltd.

  6. 6. City & Guilds 2399-11 Synopsis Unit 312 Install, commission and handover small scale solar photovoltaic systems Unit aim The purpose and aim of this unit is to enable learners to demonstrate occupational competence. The unit focuses upon the occupational competence required to plan and prepare for, install (including testing and commissioning) and handover of grid connected solar photovoltaic systems that are within the scope of Engineering Recommendation G83/1 with an electrical output of up to 5 kilowatt peak (kWp) connected to both single and three–phase installations. Learning outcomes There are five learning outcomes to this unit. The learner will be able to: 1. Plan and prepare for the installation of a solar photovoltaic system 2. Install solar photovoltaic system components 3. Inspect and test a new solar photovoltaic system installation 4. Commission a new solar photovoltaic system installation 5. Hand over a new solar photovoltaic system installation Assessment This unit will be assessed by a practical assignmentVersion: Issue 1.2 Page 6 of 8 Approved FD/SR/PLS © Trans-Euro Engineering Services Ltd.

  7. 7. City & Guilds 2399-11 Synopsis Administrative Arrangements The course and the exam are normally held at Trans-Euro’s premises at 186 Watling Street, Towcester, but the location can be at client premises by prior arrangement. Normal times of attendance are from 09:00 to 17:00, with lunch from 12:15 to 13:00. Refreshment breaks are taken as necessary during the morning and afternoon. Towcester is centrally placed and is conveniently accessible by road, rail and air. Accommodation and parking are easily arranged. Full details are available from the Course Secretary. Participants with special needs should advise the Course Secretary 21 days before the start of the course. See “Equal Opportunities”, below. Safety Warning Note that the Trans-Euro emergency assembly area is the Magistrate’s Court car park, across the main A5 Watling Street. This is a busy trunk road therefore extreme caution is required. Equal Opportunities Trans-Euro supports equal opportunities in education, training and employment, and takes positive action to achieve this. We are committed to giving delegates who want to gain an award an equal opportunity of achieving it irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, physical abilities, learning capabilities, eyesight, hearing etc in line with current UK legislation and EU directives. Delegates with impairment(s) should make their requirements known in advance of booking courses in order to provide time for specialised staff external to the Centre to be made available to assist and for additional exam time to be sought where appropriate, eg for dyslexic or deaf delegates. The formal, detailed, Trans-Euro Equal Opportunities Policy statement is available on request, held by the Course Secretary.
