Solar Training Courses, More of Them

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post on some new online solar training courses being offered by Infinite Solar Online. Since then, a couple of folks have informed me of a couple more sites where you can take online solar training course (or live courses). So, here’s another quick post on these options:

Everblue

Everblue, which is reportedly “the nation’s largest clean energy educator,” offers solar training courses for various solar positions and levels, with a mixture of online or live training:

“Both the Solar PV Installer and Solar Sales Professional training courses include the prerequisite Solar PV Associate curriculum,” the company notes on its solar training courses page (it offers training in LEED, energy auditing, and other fields as well).

The company also offers their courses in more complete packages:

ImagineSolar

ImagineSolar is yet another solar training company. As someone from the company, Summer Morris, stated in the comments of my post a couple weeks ago, it offers “online courses in solar PV installation & design (with live lab), solar sales/marketing, smart grid, and others.”

“We also have live workshops all over Texas and throughout the U.S., from OR to NY to NC,” Summer noted. Such workshops include off-grid, grid-tied, and utility-scale PV workshops.

With the solar energy industry still growing fast in the U.S., and passing 100,000 jobs in 2011, this is definitely a hot industry. Makes it hard to cover all the big news every day, but I guess that’s better than not having anything to write about!

If you’re looking for a green job, and especially if you’re interested in diving into the solar industry, hopefully one of the programs above looks good to you. If any of you have any experience taking any of these courses, I’d love to hear it! (I imagine others would, as well.)
