Everblue Training Institute is excited to announce the addition of an online solar training course. This online course prepares students to successfully pass the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) exam, which is required to install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.

“The online solar training allows students to fit a continuing education program into their current careers with ease,” said Vince DiFrancesco, Everblue’s solar and renewable energy program manager. “This incentivizes people to pursue careers in solar PV installation who might otherwise have been deterred.”

This $300 course is five weeks long and includes six hours of live webinars (that are recorded in case a student is unable to tune in during the appointed time) and 34 hours of guided, online self-study for a total of 40 hours of instruction. Each student receives a Solar PV Training Kit to facilitate interactive learning. Instructors are available via email or online chat at any time.

The course is ideal for anyone considering a career in solar PV installation. This can be an added service offering for many already involved in construction and contracting trades, or it can be an entirely new career move.

“Everblue is providing students an edge on the competition and setting them ahead of the curve,” DiFrancesco said. “The solar training course educates students on the fundamentals of solar energy, preparing them for the rapidly growing renewable energy industry.”

This course is particularly ideal for anyone in remote geographic areas who cannot access a traditional classroom course. It is also ideal for people with scheduling conflicts that prevent them from attending a classroom course.
