SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAICS


The solar power industry is a rapidly growing field that is expected to help ease human dependence on the use of fossil fuels. Solar panels are now rated to produce up to 600 volts of electricity, and the cost of purchasing and installing these panels for residential purposes has been reduced considerably. Because of this, the need for solar photovoltaic installers has increased and is projected to grow with the demand for solar installations.

In response to this demand, NCCER has developed a curriculum for both entry level and advanced solar PV installation technicians – all in support of the North American Board of Energy Practitioners’ (NABCEP’s) educational standards for technicians. This one-level curriculum covers topics such as Introduction to Solar Photovoltaics, System Design, and System Installation.

This particular craft requires some additional instructor requirements.
