Course Overview

This training program combines a three course training track:

Photovoltaic System Professional

Solar Water Heating Specialist

LEED Green Associate

The Solar Energy Specialist is a comprehensive program and guide to installation of residential and commercial photovoltaic (PV) systems. This course covers the principles of PV electricity and how to effectively incorporate it into stand-alone or utility-connected electrical systems. We give detailed illustrations to clarify the concepts behind PV system operation. Also learn heating water with the sun which is a practice almost as old as humankind itself. This Solar Water Heating Specialist course is a guide to this clean and cost-effective technology. Finally, our Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate course provides the foundational concepts and standards for the residential, commercial and institutional green building industry. This course prepares students to sit for the LEED Green Associate exam and forms the foundation for a career as a LEED Professional. Course content covers green building core concepts and strategies, sustainable thinking and implementation, LEED standards and rating systems, and an overview of the LEED Green Associate credentialing exam.
