With the advent of new technology in renewable energy, Solar Installation Training has become a high demanding field in recent years. There has been a tremendous growth in demand and supply of Solar PV based arrays. Throughout the nation there are training centers that offer various Solar Installation Trainings trying to educate new and upcoming installation training

People often wonder if getting trained in this field is something that is right for them or not. There are several factors to consider before you decide to become a professional solar installer. In order to stand out and be a professional in this field, you should consider taking a certification/credentials of either IREC (Interstate Renewable Energy Council) or NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners). One of the key factors to keep in mind is that job in this field will require working on roof tops and out in fields. This means you should be prepared to work in this high rise environments and also willing to travel. This job is definitely not for someone looking for an office desk placement. You have to be outgoing and hands on. These training programs do prepare you to be just that and train you to know both the new technologies in Solar Energy and how to properly install in field.

Some of the trainings provided in Solar Installation Training programs include –
• Solar Energy Overview and Fundamentals
• Safety in workplace
• Basics of generating Electricity from Solar PV Cells
• Fundamentals of PV (Photovoltaics) operations
• Mounting and Components of PV (Photovoltaics)
• Sizing PV Array and Electrical/Deployment Designs
• PV Tuning and Performance

These training programs are designed to give you basic knowledge from what Solar Energy is and how it has evolved over the years to how to fine tune your deployed solution. You get familiarized with terms used and learn how effective solar energy can be used to generate electricity. Safety is another major aspect of getting the Solar Installation Training. As the nature of job in this field is to be on high roofs and in large fields, it is imperative that safety precautions are taken not only from location perspective, but also working with heavy equipment and electrical components.

With a slowdown in manufacturing sector there has been a major shift in career change into this field. It has been one of the highest growing fields over the last couple of years and with Government offering tax credits to end consumers the demand has been very high. If you are someone looking for a new career, a new challenge or something new to learn, then these hands-on Solar Installation Training programs are definitely something to consider. You just have to find a local Solar Training provider and think Green Energy!
