Solar Photovoltaic Installation Lab
In this hands-on course, students will install one or more fully operational full scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. The course is taught at the Commercial Avenue Campus Solar Training Lab, which features pitched roof, flat roof, and pole mount solar PV systems. Students will learn safe workplace practices, electrical code compliance, and interconnection commissioning procedures while working with solar panels, racking systems, DC/AC power inverters and other balance of system components. The course is taught as a two-day intensive short course in order to replicate the type of installation practices and working conditions that are common in the solar industry.
