Description

Hi Solar enthusiasts! Welcome to the Complete Solar Energy course, the only course out there with everything you need to know on Solar Photovoltaic Energy.  I've seen plenty of other options for Solar Energy training, but this course is without a doubt the most comprehensive and effective in the marketplace, let me tell you why: 

  • This is the only course taught by an Environmental Engineer
  • All the students I worked with, go on to get a Full-time job in the Solar Industry.
  • The previous courses I held were priced @ U$1500, you'll get exactly the same comprehensive content for a fraction of that price
  • I will be permanently updating content so you can be Up-To date with the industry! Consider it as a never-ending source of information.
  • I was involved in the installation of 200+ Solar PV systems in Australia & the U.S
  • I've been were you are right now and this course includes everything I wish I had when I first started in this industry.

I understand how difficult it is to hit the ideal course for your needs, this course is designed for complete Beginners, yet covering some of the most exciting and relevant topics in the industry!
