What will I learn?
The new Solar Photovoltaic Installer Certificate teaches you about safety, racking systems and the installation of electrical and energy storage components associated with photovoltaic solar systems. You’ll also learn how to inspect, test and commission the system. It all starts with the fundamentals and a solid understanding of various components, system architectures and applications for PV systems. Other topics include site analysis, system sizing, array configuration and performance estimation; electrical design characteristics such as wiring, overcurrent protection and grounding; a detailed look at module and inverter specifications and characteristics; mounting methods for various roof structures and ground-mounts; and an introduction to safely and effectively commissioning grid-direct PV systems.
