Solar Energy International is capping off its 20th anniversary year of renewable energy training by launching a new, comprehensive Solar Professionals Certificate Program. The program accommodates a growing industry seeking qualified and highly trained professionals. Solar Energy International's Solar Professionals Certificate Program participants can choose from these full training paths: * Residential and Commercial Photovoltaic Systems Certificate * Battery-Based Photovoltaic Systems Certificate * Solar Business and Technical Sales Certificate * International and Developing World Applications Certificate * Renewable Energy Applications Certificate * Solar Professionals Trainer of Trainers Certificate

Program Application
In the solar training industry, it is becoming more and more important and valuable to employers of where someone has received their training in addition to what certifications they hold. With this in mind, it may be more critical to hold a formal training certificate from Solar Energy International to accelerate your career while accumulating real-world experience. Proof of completion of a rigorous training program from a leading, industry-trusted training provider such as Solar Energy International may be key to even being considered for a position.

"As many of the renewable energy industry certification requirements are becoming more and more stringent with an increased focus and requirements for installation or sales experience, individuals may not even qualify to sit for a certification exam right after training," said Christopher Turek, SEI's Director of Online and Educational Services. "With this in mind, it may be more critical to hold a formal training certificate from Solar Energy International to accelerate your career while you are gaining on the ground experience."

Turek said Solar Energy International fully supports the overall solar industry's approach to business and the various paths to certification, but strongly advocates for anyone wanting to enter this field to receive their education from an unbiased educational training organization.

"Many of the test prep-focused training organizations may be giving you a boot-camp style of training to prepare you for a certification test you may not even qualify to take until you have years of experience," he said. "Additionally, some solar training opportunities are just a business model to get new installers into a company's 'eco-system' of dealer or distributor networks. Obtaining your training experience from a provider like SEl proves that you have been trained through a deep and rigorous program to fully prepare you as a solar professional. Our rigorous training program is preparing you for a career and a future in an industry that is rapidly changing, not just a certification test or training on a specific brand or product."


Based on 20 years of training experience, SEI's Solar Professionals Certificate Program differs from others, as it draws from the largest pool of credentialed instructors in the industry who transfer their knowledge to participants.

"Many of you may be asking if our program still prepares you for industry certification exams, and the answer is yes, and then some," Turek said. "You will be well prepared many of the certification exams along the way during your training in our program and you will be exposed to many of the leading technologies and brands in the industry, but that is only a piece of your overall success in this industry. Working through our full training program and our experienced instructors will get you where you want to go with your career."
