This solar panel installation training is an introductory course and will provide you with all the necessary knowledge to install grid-tied and off-grid systems.

We will show you how to design your system, get the right parts, mount your solar panels, optimize the system for maximum efficiency, connect the modules in a circuit and start producing clean energy.

The 4-day course includes printed installation manuals, access to installation videos, your solar installation certificate and a daily catering service. We offer skills-based training and a 70% score is required to pass the course and obtain certification (wall certificate and wallet card). Our course will allow you to understand solar photovoltaic technology, to do a site assessment, to install systems (rooftop or ground), to make a request for net metering with your local electricity supplier, to calculate the return on investment of the system and do a daily KW requirement analysis for off-grid system, and much more. You don`t need to bring anything–we provide all necessary training material.
