Our Solar Training

Our Solar Installer program teaches the types, designs, components, and installation methods for photovoltaic systems used in various renewable energy applications. Mechanics learn solar cell technology, how solar radiation produces power, basic electricity, array location, and assembly. We collaborate with project owners and offer special training tailored to your unique techniques and procedures. Mechanics learn about the materials they will encounter and techniques they will need for your project, whether it is utility scale, the roofs of new construction, or retrofitting buildings.
