Solar Energy International's On-Demand Online Continuing Education Series Grows

In the past year, Solar Energy International has served more than 200 students and solar professionals through the SEI Online Continuing Education Series by offering short, topic-based online sessions.

SEI's Online Continuing Education Series offers solar training from the industry's leading presenters covering highly technical to general informational topics. Originally designed to align with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP)-approved topic list for re-certification, individuals from other trades and industries such as electricians and roofers can also take advantage of these sessions toward their CE requirements. These sessions are offered both in streaming live and/or recorded presentation format to provide flexibility for the busy professional.
