This IREC ISPQ Accredited program provides professional training for construction professionals seeking employment in the solar industry, as well as licensed Contractors who want to get started in the solar PV industry.

The goal of this five-day Photovoltaic (PV) design and installation course is to provide trainees expertise with the latest techniques that are required to install solar PV systems. This is a performance-based course designed upon job-related tasks a solar installer must perform and prepares you for entry into the solar field. 

Our trainers are industry professionals with extensive real-world knowledge that is effectively relayed throughout our institute. We provide instructor-led training throughout the day over the length of the course in a distraction-free environment. Instructors are available at all times to provide individual and group attention, and ensure the students’ success.

Students will get the hands-on experience of installing grid-tied solar systems using top of the line solar equipment from Solon, Sanyo, Kyocera, SMA, Enphase, PVPowered and Unirac. Over the course of the week you will learn through a mix of classroom and solar lab work. Students will assemble and wire multiple operating solar PV electric systems.

At the completion of the course students will take a final exam. Upon obtaining a passing grade they will receive a Certificate of Completion from STI. Successful completion of this course also allows students to take the NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam given by STI.
