An Installer’s Guide to CPD Points

An Installer's Guide to CPD points

The Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme was created by the Clean Energy Council (CEC). The purpose of the programme is to improve the standard of work within the solar industry. 


Renewal as of this year for accreditation may be done through Solar Accreditation Australia (SAA). As an accredited person, you must transfer to the new ASO within three months of the CER’s announcement to maintain your accreditation and small-scale technology certificate (STC) eligibility.

The CEC will end their accreditation services when the CER’s decision is announced.

What are CPD points?

The programme requires installers to earn 100 CPD points each year in order to maintain their accreditation.

CPD points are put in place to ensure that installers are kept up to date with industry changes, updates, and are aware of new technology. 

CPD training courses are split into two categories: Core & Elective. 60 of the 100 CPD points earned each year must come from Core training courses.

How to earn CPD points

To earn CPD points, you can consider the following options:

1. Attend Industry Conferences and Workshops: Participate in solar industry conferences, workshops, and seminars. These events often offer CPD points for attending and provide valuable insights into the latest developments in the field.

2. Online Courses and Webinars: Enrol in online courses or webinars that focus on solar energy and its applications. Many organisations offer CPD points for completing these courses, which can be a convenient way to earn points from the comfort of your home or office.

3. Industry Training Programs: Look for training programs specifically designed for solar professionals. These programs often cover various aspects of solar energy, including design, installation, maintenance, and safety. Completing these programs earns you CPD points.
