to the Basics
If you think of "solar panel schools" as "solar installer schools", you couldn't be farther from the truth. True, you'll learn the basics of solar installation, but the training is designed to fit many types of career paths.
Solar panel schools start with NABCEP's (North American Board of Certified Energy Practioners) Entry Level Certificate of Knowledge of PV Systems. This is the industry-standard general knowledge certificate for those entering the field. If you choose to become an installer, you can then move on to the PV (Photovoltaic) Installer Certification program.
As you enter the solar training course, you'll learn what our ancestors already knew as they built their homes to face the sun - sun paths and horizon profiles, peak sun hours and shading effects. From the foundations those basics provide, you'll move to learning about current technology: the history of PV panels, system design, installation, estimating, effective solar business models, PV system applications and more.
By the time the course is finished, you'll know enough to begin a career in the solar industry, in whatever area you choose. Sales, installation, design, manufacture and PV troubleshooting are just a few of the possible career paths in this booming industry. As new technology replaces old and the future gets brighter, you have the chance now to set your pathway to a brighter career with training from solar panel schools.
