Online Solar Training

play-video-buttonIn our effort to keep our online classes state-of-the-art and up-to-date, we are currently retooling our online PV Design & Installation training program.  Most of the material is current and vital, but we don’t feel right charging full price as we are working on a couple of the modules.  During the interim we are offering a $100 discount on the PV Design & Installation course. Register normally and update your shopping cart with the code “solar”. The PV Design & Installation course continues to provide all you need as an education prerequisite for the NABCEP Associate PV exam.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Whether your career track is management, installation, finance, sales, marketing, customer service or administrative support, our eCourse series provides a solid foundation to build or jump-start your solar industry career.
