What is IBT 200?

Installation Basics Training 200 (IBT 200) is a free, 200-hour, five-week training program designed to help you develop the skills solar industry employers are looking for. Participants will learn from interactive classroom instruction and hands-on lab activities at GRID IE’s new Clean Tech Training Center (CTTC), and includes real-world solar installation projects.

GRID is offering over $2000 in cash stipends for IBT 200 trainees upon completion of the training program and to support placement into a local solar job.
