The Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) program provides students with the technical knowledge and skills needed to adapt a solar photovoltaic design; conduct a site assessment; read blueprints; and install, maintain, and troubleshoot a solar photovoltaic system. Students will learn basic electricity concepts in DC and AC electrical circuits, voltage, and electric codes, as well as practice hands-on basic residential wiring. Solar installation site assessments and design skills will be developed through hand sketches, use of IT Technology and Computer Aided Drafting software.
During the program, students have the opportunity to earn OSHA safety certification. Upon completion of the program, students will be scheduled to take the North American Board of Certified Practioners (NABCEP) Photovoltaic (PV) Associate certification exam.
Graduates are qualified for employment as entry-level installers of residential and commercial solar energy applications. A history of felony convictions or substance abuse may adversely affect your ability to gain employment in this field. We encourage you to consider your personal history when making appropriate career choices.
