  1. Hi,
    I am Wila Marino Baafec from Papua New Guinea and interested in attending one of your training on solar and renewable energy. Please send me course details and full costings.

    Thank you and awaiting your response.

    1. Hi Sam

      I have run courses in Brisbane but these have only been the theory component. The practical requires access to a range of real world equipment.

      I have built one of the leading practical training facilities for solar hybrid/off-grid at my off-grid community (Moora Moora Coop) near Healesville, Victoria.

      The courses held here are heavily focused on learning about current technologies and using the latest equipment.

      You can enrol at http://solarquip.com.au/product/hybridoff-grid-course/

      Hope to see you there.

      Glen
