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.

Feed In Tariff rules mean that you are at risk of having your tariff revoked if you do not replace broken panels on a like for like basis. This can lead to difficulties when sourcing a replacement.

GB-Sol can cost-effectively create replacement panels with similar look and output to your originals, with mono or poly crystalline cells, 35mm or 40mm silver or black frame, white or black background to any specified dimensions.
