About the course
Get the renewable energy training you need as you learn the basics of solar systems, their benefits, and their many applications. Examine the history of photovoltaic solar power, and gain a sense for where the PV industry is headed. We'll start with basic safety, including how to avoid potential accidents and how to create a safe work environment as well as the use of protective equipment. You'll master the fundamentals of electricity and solar energy, including how to calculate simple circuit values and predict solar position using solar path diagrams. Upon completion of this program, you'll have a thorough understanding of PV applications, working safety as it pertains to this field, basic electricity, and PV module fundamentals.
Upon completion of this program you'll be able to:
High-speed Internet is recommended. This program is compatible with the Windows XP and later operating systems and IE 7 and later browsers. You also need to have the latest version of Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader to properly view all course content. This program cannot be taken on a Mac.
