Solar Panel Installation Training

solar panel trainingThe field of solar technology is quickly on the rise as “going green” grows in popularity. Yet, for those interested in making this way of life a successful career, the only way to get their foot in the door is with the proper training. Now is the time to sign up for solar panel installation classes in order to beat the rush as more people realize the huge profit margin in solar panel installation. There are already big projects all over America breaking new ground in the field of solar technology and it’s only going to get bigger. With natural resources becoming scarce, the need for well trained people to install, and properly maintain, the technology necessary to save our planet will no doubt be in high demand.

Solar panel installation is only one option in this field. For those living in or around the Dahlonega, Georgia area there’s now a school that will provide eager students with solar training certification. There is a great deal of money to be made by being some of the first to be certified in solar technology. There’s no doubt that the demand for such highly educated people to do the job well will gain a firm foothold in the economy of tomorrow.

President Obama has made it a big goal in her first term in office to see that solar technology and other “green projects” like windmill farms are not just dreams for the future. The time is now to get into solar panel installation training. Fossil fuels are not going to last forever, and that’s becoming all the more obvious as Americans see gas prices rise close to three dollars a gallon, if not more. There are many people today that try and ignore the need for solar training certification, but it will soon become undeniable that switching to cleaner energy technology will not only save money today, it will save the planet for tomorrow.

So don’t be one of the many who choose to hide their head in the sand. Solar technology, and the solar certification classes that allow those smart enough to get on board now, is a big opportunity for those looking to make more money in 2011. Taking solar classes now will get those with a love of the planet, and a desire to get into a solid career in this painful recession, into a secure vocation. Help improve the world of tomorrow with solar training certifications today.

NABCEP and IREC

IREC Accredited Solar Panel TrainingWhat are NABCEP and IREC?

If you have been looking into Solar Panel Installation Training, then you have probably heard of NABCEP and IREC, but have no idea who they are, or what they mean to your training. Essentially, they are the regulatory bodies who make sure solar power technicians, and solar training companies, have received the certification or accreditation they need to provide their customers with quality installation service and expert training.

NABCEP - the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners – sets the skill level and background experience a technician will need in order to receive national certification in Solar Panel Installation. The certifications offered are for solar photovoltaic panels, solar thermal panels and wind energy installers. To receive Solar Training Certification, you must attend Solar Classes provided by an accredited Solar Training Provider. It involves a minimum number of training hours and course work in your chosen solar installation field, and you must pass the Solar Training Certification Exam provided by NABCEP. Once you have that you are ready to start your career at the highest level – a NABCEP Certified Installation technician or Certified PV Technical Sales professional.

IREC stands for Interstate Renewable Energy Council and is similar to NABCEP, but where NABCEP sets the standards for individual technicians, IREC sets the standards for Solar Training companies. ISPQ is the nation’s highest accreditation for renewable energy training providers and it is awarded through IREC. IREC sends their auditors to the facilities that provide solar classes and solar training in order to observe and approve everything about the company and the training program – from a company’s financial fitness, to the quality of their curriculum. They also ensure that the teachers have the knowledge and experience they need to provide state-of-the-art training. Once the IREC auditors have completed the quality assessments, they submit their reports to the ISPQ board for approval. Accreditation is awarded when the ISPQ board approves the reports.

NABCEP and IREC were formed to make sure the solar classes and solar training offered to the public are of the highest national quality. If you are about to start your training for a career in solar power then you should be aware of these two organizations.  Make sure any Solar Classes you take are offered by a provider with IREC Accreditation. Any Solar Training you receive should be approved by NABCEP to qualify you to take the Solar Training Certification exam. Once solar power becomes more widespread, national certification will be even more important to your career. Consumers are rapidly becoming knowledgeable about solar energy and will want technicians with a nationally recognized Solar Training Certification.
