This one-hour online solar training course addresses the basics of solar photovoltaics [PV] for those currently working in the solar industry, those looking to enter the PV industry, or those who are simply curious about how solar works.
Intro to Solar PV was written and recorded by Catherine Kelso, Ambassador Energy’s Director of Training. Kelso is one of only a handful of solar professionals who is certified by NABCEP as a Solar PV Installer and Solar PV Technical Salesperson. She is a veteran in the solar industry, taught solar training for Ambassador Energy since 2010 and designed much of the curriculum for Ambassador Energy College.
I am excited to offer this complimentary video, providing basic solar PV knowledge,
The growing library of on-line courses includes Solar Modules, Solar String Sizing and Solar System Sizing. Each may be downloaded for only $29.95.
“Our goal is to offer a high-quality, information-centric course free-of-charge,” said Kelly Smith, President of Ambassador Energy.
Then, as people become more interested in the details of solar, they can build on a solid foundation of accurate, current solar knowledge. It’s all about educating people, as there is so much misinformation and spin out there. These courses will mostly be viewed by industry folks, but I am constantly surprised how many regular consumers are curious and want to know more about it. Solar is elusive and sexy technology.
In addition to on-line training, Ambassador Energy offers an entire menu of solar training classes at their facility in Southern California. Courses include:
- Entry Level Solar PV Design and Installation
