The training includes 2 days in the classroom learning the basics of PV installation, solar purchasing options, site assessment, and more.  Students will then spend 4 days installing residential PV for GRID Alternatives clients.  After that, students will spend one day exploring solar career pathways and creating solar resumes to use in the job application process.  The last day of the training will be an employer meet and greet where students will meet with reps from solar companies and will have the opportunity to explore employment opportunities.   This is a great way to get the training needed to get your foot in the door of the solar industry and start a career in the renewable energy sector.
