Solar Energy International is celebrating 21 years of renewable energy training by launching a new, comprehensive Solar Professionals Certificate Program. This program is an expansion of a previously successful Colorado-based program to fully serve a national and international audience of solar professionals. The intent of the SEI Solar Professionals Certificate Program is to go beyond a “certification test prep” format of training and take participants to a higher level of educational experience to truly prepare them for the solar industry and a career.
SEI Solar Professionals Certificate Options include:
- Residential and Commercial Photovoltaic Systems Certificate
- Battery-Based Photovoltaic Systems Certificate
- Solar Business and Technical Sales Certificate
- International and Developing World Applications Certificate
- Renewable Energy Applications Certificate
- Solar Professionals Trainer of Trainers Certificate
A quality training certificate program should be based on industry-reviewed curriculum that introduces students to current technologies and best practices. A quality training certificate program should also have a strong focus on safety and real world job-site conditions. Additionally, a quality training certificate program should be long enough in both training hours and number of courses to fully expose you to all the topics and conditions that exist in the industry.
During the SEI Solar Professionals Certificate Program you will exceed the baseline required number of training hours for industry certification exams. One thing to keep in mind when selecting a training program is that a quality training certificate program should offer you rigorous preparation for an industry and a career. It should NOT solely prepare you to pass a test. This explains why SEI’s certificate paths are at least 120 contact training hours in length.
