The Inflation Reduction Act has allocated $370 billion towards supporting clean energy and climate action, including installing solar panels. In the first quarter of 2023, 54% of all new electricity-generating capacity additions were photovoltaic solar (PV) projects. With the industry's upward trends and the increased demand, the solar market is expected to triple in size by 2028. This solar panel installer training course is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge and hands-on training to become proficient in the installation and design of PV systems.
Within the comprehensive curriculum of this solar installation course, you will cover various solar PV installation and system design aspects, including the step-by-step process of installing solar panels and how to ensure proper placement for optimal energy production. You will also cover the installation and integration of essential balance-of-system components, including inverters, charge controllers, and battery banks.
A thorough understanding of both grid-tied and off-grid systems will enable you to confidently design and install solar PV systems that meet specific needs and requirements. Throughout the course, you can access interactive modules, instructional videos, and real-world solar installation training case studies to enhance your understanding of the concepts and principles.
By the end of the solar installation course, you will have acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to install solar panels and design efficient solar PV systems. You will be well-versed in industry best practices, safety protocols, and relevant codes and standards and pursue careers as solar PV installers, system designers, or technicians.
Upon completion, you will receive a certificate of completion. Although Everblue's certification differs from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners® (NABCEP®), it meets the education requirement set by NABCEP.
