Online programs available at any time including the following:


R100: Free Sample Course – Introduction to Renewable Energy

Introduction to Renewable Energy is a free online sample course for those who wish to learn the basics of renewable energy—including where it is found, how we can harvest it for use in our homes and how it can help ease pressures on the environment.

PVOL101: Solar Training – Solar Electric Design and Installation (Grid-Direct)

This online solar training course establishes fundamental concepts required for safe, code-compliant design and installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems, with a focus on residential-sized grid-direct solar electric systems. The goal of the course is to create a fundamental understanding of the core concepts necessary to work with all PV systems, including: system components, site analysis, PV module criteria, mounting solutions, safety, and commissioning.

PVOL202: Solar Training – Advanced PV System Design and the NEC (Grid-Direct)

This online solar training workshop builds upon the core concepts from PV101, expanding them to address larger, more complex grid-direct PV systems. Apply National Electrical Code (NEC) standards and industry best practices to residential and commercial grid-direct solar electric systems to ensure safe, code-compliant design and installation.

PVOL203: Solar Training – Solar Electric Design (Battery-Based)

This course builds upon the core concepts from PV101, with a specific emphasis on battery-based system design. Students will work through step-by-step design process for battery-based applications, including stand-alone (off-grid), grid-tied with battery back-up, and hybrid systems. Apply the National Electrical Code (NEC) to battery-based systems in this online solar training course to ensure safe, code-compliant design and installation.

PVOL206: Solar Training – Solar Business and Technical Sales

This online solar training course has been developed from the ground up with a strong focus on business principals and non-technical financial and economics topics, and is directly aligned with the NABCEP PV Technical Sales task analysis. This workshop is for those currently working in the solar industry or hoping to work in solar sales.
