"The Solar Training Institute gave me a solid understanding of all the processes that go into a solar array.  After my training classes were over,  your organization remained committed to me, offering job hunting advice, industry names and even placement opportunities.  I felt comfortable leaving the class that I had enough knowledge to enter the field of solar energy."

- S. Drake
