"I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that. I wish I had more years left!" - Thomas Edison
This Photovoltaic (PV) systems installation training course is designed to provide participants with the necessary skills for the design, installation, commission, inspection and maintenance of solar systems. The topics covered include: types of PV Systems and their component configurations, sizing, wiring, jobsite analysis, and laws and legislations regarding the National Electrical Code (NEC), commissioning and inspection of newly installed PV systems. In addition, participants will be informed on health and safety regulations related to PV installation and maintenance requirements.
Participants are guaranteed extensive practical exposure to solar system installations through having an opportunity to take part in a 1 - day hands-on rooftop solar installation after completing all in-class sessions..
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will gain the necessary knowledge and skills required to perform design calculations and installation of solar PV systems, including the inspection and maintenance necessary upon completion. This will allow participants to conform to their duties and responsibilities as required by the country's NEC laws.
This Solar Power Systems training course is open to anyone interested in becoming a professional within the solar industry. These comprehensive workshops are recommended for persons currently working or interested in working in the solar industry, or anyone who would like to know how solar energy works.
Energy is at the foundation of everything we do, and solar energy has the potential to provide value to many sectors of society. Individuals in other fields of work such as Agriculture, Business Management, Craftsmanship, Engineering, Manufacturing, Tourism, Sales, Marketing, Law, Finance and Insurance can greatly benefit from this course.
