PV301 offers participants an advanced level of hands-on and lecture to prepare them for field installations and other advanced workshops. PV301 is for individuals interested in getting hands-on experience sizing, designing, and installing a residential sized photovoltaic system.

Participants will revisit how to correctly design, size and select PV system components and identify and interpret National Electric Code (NEC) articles that pertain to the installations. While working on a training roof, participants will learn safety procedures, system design and layout, component selection and specification, electrical and mechanical integration techniques, and troubleshooting that take place on real job sites.

Participants are required to have attended a PV101 and PV201 class, or comparable classes.
