PV is a proven technology, and the industry is growing at a very rapid pace. Training is essential, and NABCEP certification is driving the industry to a high standard. Train, obtain your certification, align yourself with a company that offers quality products, and stay abreast of new products, methods, processes and code changes.
Solar Installation Education
Joe Thomas | MAGE SOLAR USA
- First, our sole focus really is PV education. Most of our technical training is conducted in intense 40 hour courses, typically Monday through Friday. This allows individuals to train quickly and get moving towards a new career or expand the portfolio of their current offerings.
- Secondly, even though the academy carries our name, the educational content we deliver is not product-specific, meaning exercises and labs utilize products from a variety of suppliers and manufacturers so that attendees receive a diverse exposure to products and equipment used in the solar industry. Nevertheless, our direct ties to the industry allow us to maintain a cutting-edge knowledge of products, developments, and processes within the industry.
- And third, an integral part of MSA is its extensive indoor-outdoor training and simulation area allowing for hands-on practice all year round and completely independent from weather conditions. The academy is also actually located in a technology park that features different cutting-edge photovoltaic applications and wants to familiarize students with the wide spectrum of grid-tied and off-grid PV-solutions.
Graduates of the Fundamental and Advanced class and successful NABCEP-certified installers may be in charge of developing and building a new PV-service within their existing company, which is what a lot of construction businesses have done by sending sent their employees for training in our academy. Some are starting to work for an existing integrator or might even begin their very own company. Others will bring valuable knowledge, opportunities and benefits of clean energy back to their community and might lay the groundwork for a sustainable, thriving future for the city or county. There are a tremendous amount of choices, and really only the sky seems to be the limit.
