Solar PV training
As largely a 21st century profession that has grown quickly, there is strong demand for PV training around the world. We are aiming to provide the most comprehensive listing of free and paid-for solar PV training courses, from roof-top through to commercial.
Solar PV covers an ever-increasing range of skills. The broad subject domains are design, installation, monitoring and management for PV installations. There is increasing interest in linking energy storage to solar PV and will be growing demand for skills in this area. PV designers and installers will increasingly need to understand the smart grid and the integration of PV, storage and demand response.
Because the solar PV field is growing so fast, and as standards and codes continue to be updated, training can date quickly, or may not be available.
So if you can’t find a solar PV training course here that you are after, or you believe that one of the courses we have listed is out of date, please get in contact.
