This Solar PV Installer course is designed to teach individuals how to physically install solar panels, modules, and components. Students will be constructing an actual array on a roof deck rack and installing the balance of components, including inverters, charge controllers, and battery banks for grid-tied and off-grid systems. This hands-on solar training course will provide you with the skills required to work for an installer or to work toward becoming a Solar Contractor yourself. In addition, you will be on your way toward qualifying to take the NABCEP PV Installation Professional Exam. We want to help meet the growing demand for solar PV installers!
