Renewable Energy-Advanced PV

Advanced Photovoltaic Design and Installation

This training program builds upon the core concepts from Entry Level PV and emphasizes grid-direct systems. It focuses significantly on the National Electrical Code (NEC), including grid interface calculations, grounding considerations, and advanced component specification. Students will learn to evaluate system performance under various operating conditions. Commercial system design elements, such as inter-row shading, inverter selection, and data monitoring solutions will also be covered. This course combines class lectures with individual
problem solving exercises covering common design considerations. Certification: Preparation for North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Installer’s Exam.

Requirements: Entry Level PV or 2 years experience.
