Does maxx-academy have an accreditation?

Our courses are accredited by DGS Solar School Germany and internationally recognized. There are no other courses like ours in South Africa yet and therefor even no local standard.

Furthermore, two of our courses are accredited with CPD points by SAIEE.

When you complete one of our courses you will get a certificate and another certificate if you successfully complete the optional exam.


Which one is the right course for me?

I want to install solar power plants


--> Solar Sunrise Intermediate Course
and Solar Power Technician Course
I want to design, plan and quote for the installation
of embedded generation PV systems

I do not live in one of the academy towns and do
not want to travel severyl timest o the courses
--> Super Solar School
I want to design, plan and quote for the installation
of state-of-the-art PV off-grid systems
--> Solar Sunrise Intermediate Course
and Solar Power Designer off-grid
I want to start a professional solar business and
need knowledge and contacts / a network
--> Solar Power Sunrise Intermediate
and Solar Power Technician
and Solar Designer: grid-tied

All these courses are available as package in our Super Solar School!

Can I start to work in the PV business after I participated in the Sunrise Intermediate course?

This course gives you a great insight into the grid-tied (embedded generation) PV market of the countries and all the basics you need to go to the professional courses, but it doesn´t make you an expert. To really become an expert, you need to do the professional courses as well. After completion of the courses maxx will help you to get into the market and prepare you to run your own PV business.


Which courses will provide you me with the knowledge and network to start to work solar power business?

If you participate in these three courses:

or in the Super Solar School, you will get an insight into all parts of the solar power business. You learn how to design grid-tied systems, how to install and how to operate them in South Africa. Furthermore you will get as maxx-solar academy Alumni the full support of the maxx-solar energy team.
