Learn everything you need to know as you begin your career in solar
The Solar Technology Program offers certificates in both Solar Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal Technologies. The entry-level program will teach you everything you need to know as you begin your career in solar technology. After foundational solar theory discussions in the classroom, you’ll quickly move on to applied instruction by installing the solar panels and solar hot water heater on the CR student-built house.
Both of our certificate options provide training in basic residential construction, electrical wiring including electrical theory, residential wiring circuits, blueprint reading, materials selection, installation methods and basic code requirements. Both certificates include an OSHA certification.
Students who complete either Solar Technician Certificate are fully prepared to pass State of California certification examinations.
