UET Renewable Technologies

Project scope

Traditional first responders / line workers are increasingly having to work with renewable technology systems. Solar, wind and battery power are having an increasing impact on the Transmission and Distribution industries. As a result, there is a need to update the skills of front-line workers. There is also a need to improve emergency response training for first responders to incidents involving renewable technologies. Technical skills relevant to the management, installation and maintenance of battery technology have also been identified as a priority for development by the Industry Reference Committee (IRC).

 

The ESI Transmission, Distribution and Rail IRC proposed to develop 22 new Units of Competency including renewable technologies such as vocational skills relevant to the use, handling, storage and maintenance of renewable battery technologies.
