Last Call for 2015 - Solar PV Training for #SolarVets

The Veteran Asset and Ambassador Energy have joined forces for a final #SolarVets class in 2015 for transitioning military service members and veterans. The class will be held December 7 through 18 in Murrieta, CA, and TVA will line up job interviews upon graduation.

Murrieta, CA October 27, 2015 -- "We are receiving an increasing number of calls from employers within the solar arena," said Steve Fulgham, Co-Founder of The Veteran Asset. "While we thought we were finished training for the year and preparing for a massive start in 2016, we have re-considered and are adding one final class in December 2015. Service members are transitioning monthly, and we want to do everything we can to be there for them to get them trained and ready for jobs in solar."


The #SolarVets two-week course, now scheduled for December, consists of classroom coursework, break-out sessions, quizzes, and hands-on labs, including the construction of an actual operating solar system. All of this leads to the graduates taking the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Entry Level Exam, proctored on the tenth and final day. The course qualifies for VA and WIA funding.

Upon completion, TVA goes to work to help the veteran graduates find job placement with local, regional and national solar companies. TVA continues to add patriotic solar companies to their employer roster, encouraging them to fill their jobs with solar-trained U.S. military veterans. TVA's mission includes tracking the progress of the graduates and measuring data for this newly emerging population of employees.
