Description
  • The Solar Energy course (from zero to complete design), will give you exactly what you need to know about solar system to start your career path or build your own system

  • One of the MOST IMPORTANT features of this course is that you will learn the design through specialized design software (PVSYST & SketchUp) through which you can visualize the shape of the system and analyze the shadow, and calculate the energy yield

  • In this course, you will learn what the solar system is and what its main components are, and explain each of them in a practical way

  • You will also learn the installation procedure of the practical system, aesthetics, and appearance

  • With the practical examples, you will be able to build full Visualization about the real field and how you can deal with it professionally

  • You will learn how to price the system and the calculation of simple Payback period

  • You will also be able to make a technical and financial report professionally for your customers or the company you work with


Who this course is for:
  • Engineering students
  • Beginner Engineers in this field
  • Beginner Solar energy worker
  • Any one who want to enter this sector
