Training Questions

Look here for answers to the most commonly asked questions about our training courses.

Q. I'm interested in becoming a solar installer, can I attend your training?
A.

Our training is designed for MCS accredited installers and so doesn’t cover the basics of solar PV installation. If you’re looking to become an installer, you can attend our course for a £100 attendance fee, however it won’t provide an official qualification and it may be more beneficial to complete the MCS accreditation before attending our course.

Q. How often are your training courses?
A.

We usually run our training once a month though this can vary depending on demand. Please contact us for our next available date or check the training page.

Q. Do you offer training in my area?
A.

We only have one manufacturing facility which is located in South Wales. This is where we provide our training as it includes a tour of our factory as well as installation instruction on our training roof.

PV Slate: Stylish garden workshops and carports

A recent addition to our portfolio of PV Slate projects is this garden workshop in rural Oxfordshire. On receipt of the project brief from the client, GB-Sol designed a PV system based on the dimensions of the new-build structure. The size of the building allowed for a 2.2kW system - modest but very effective for a building of this size. The PV Slate complements the Welsh Cwt-y-Bugail natural slate that borders the entire PV Slate array. The client selected a Solar Edge inverter and the entire system was designed, supplied and installed by GB-Sol.
