Solar Energy Training
Ecotech Training is the country’s premier provider of solar training for installers, designers, salespeople, and electrical professionals.
Our solar installation training courses are designed to guide you as you prepare for a job in solar energy — from the theory and science behind photovoltaics through the advanced skills needed to safely and effectively design, size and install a full solar PV array. In addition to traditional live classroom courses, we offer online classes that can be taken anytime. Our distinct education delivery formats, flexible schedules and wide selection of courses make it easy for you to take what you want when you want it.
Is Solar Training Right for You?
Solar installers determine the design of the array and perform the installations. The solar industry has nearly doubled in size every year for the past four years, and this trend is expected to continue.
How to Become a Solar Installer
The process to become a solar installer mostly depends on where an individual wants to install residential solar systems. Becoming a solar energy professional sometimes requires a state license specific to solar. In some cases it may only require an electrician’s license. Each state regulates their own solar installation and safety process, and each state’s regulations or rules are slightly different. Your state’s energy department website will list the official licensing requirements. However, there are nationally-recognized certifications, such as those offered by NABCEP, that can help give you an edge wherever you are located.
