What you'll learn in this green training:

Installing solar panels are becoming more and more popular since 2010. Thousands of home & commercial properties owners are looking for independent solar installer to install solar panels on their roof-top. In fact, solar installer positions are fast growing in solar industries. By 2020, 65% solar installation will be done by independent solar installers. 

This course will prepare participants to design and install solar PV. Hands-on training through a Volunteer Organization will be offered free of cost to every participant.

Great for engineers and engineering students, homeowners, contractors, infotech personnel (think smaller remote-operated systems), and those who want to install, maintain, inspect, or design solar installations. 

Price includes the materials fee.

A certificate is provided upon successful completion of the course.

Question from Anonymous
Hello. I realize this program doesn't qualify for an actual NABCEP certification, but does this training allow you to sit for the PV Associate credential exam? Thanks.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi, there! As per the instructor, “The way I do teach my class and after hands-on installation and free classes from Grid Alternatives, it will be possible to go for any kind of PV related exam. In fact, the student should focus on further online lesson prior to the test. A lot of my students got a solar job and, as well as, independent contractor opportunities."
