Solar PV Installer Training
The training course is a combination of lecture; hands on training; real world solar applications; solar installation contractor training; National Electrical Code (NEC) information; explanations of solar rebates offered in Texas and Federal tax credit incentives; and Texas solar installation contractor requirements.
The classes are very interactive and include much class participation. The "hands-on-training" includes the complete installation of a Solar Electric system, from installing the solar panels on the roof, to the complete wiring of the balance of systems. There is a total of two days of hands-on installation and lab training that includes all materials and tools to do the job right.
This course teaches the NABCEP Photovoltaic (PV) Entry Level Certificate of Knowledge learning objectives, and has been approved by NABCEP. Students that complete the class will qualify to take the NABCEP Certificate of Knowledge exam. The certificate of training, which all course graduates receive, will satisfy one of the requirements needed to be a solar system installation service provider in some Texas solar rebate programs, and satisfies the educational requirement to apply to sit for the NABCEP PV Installer National Certification exam.
Anyone interested in learning about or working in the solar industry or starting a solar energy company may attend this class. No particular skills are needed. A construction background and/or electrical experience are helpful.
