Description

We are pleased to announce that we are bringing Solar Energy International (SEI) to Calgary for two intensive, grid-tied solar training courses. These courses are designed to be taken in tandem and an additional $200 discount is available to students who sign up for both courses. This training program qualifies for the Canada Alberta Job Grant covering up to two thirds of course costs. Please note that there is a cap of 25 students per course and it is expected to fill up quickly. 

PV101: Solar Training – Solar Electric Design and Installation (Grid-Direct) July 17-21, 2017 (40 hours)

Early bird pricing (first 15 to register): $1,595

Regular pricing: $1,795

Starting with the fundamentals, students gain a solid understanding of various components, system architectures, and applications for PV systems. This course focuses on grid-­direct PV systems, the largest and fastest growing segment of the PV industry, but covers material critical to understanding all types of PV systems.

PV202: Solar Training – Advanced PV System Design and the NEC (Grid-Direct) July 24-28, 2017 (40 hours)

Early bird pricing (first 15 to register): $1,595

Regular pricing: $1,795

The focus in PV202 is on residential and commercial­-scale systems, but the code requirements, design parameters, and best practices are applicable to all types and sizes of PV installations. Detailed lessons address requirements for disconnects, overcurrent protection, and wire sizing; interconnection requirements and calculations; grounding, ground-­faults, and surge protection; calculations for system sizing, inverter selection, and electrical configuration; ground and roof mount details; and commissioning and performance analysis procedures.
