ONTILITY and Cedar Valley College, one of seven colleges in the Dallas County Community College District, plan to offer an entry-level solar design and installation course May 17-21 at Cedar Valley College.
The course will be taught by ONTILITY trainers Brian Cunningham and Jim Duncan, both NABCEP Certified Solar PV Installers. The 40-hour course provides students with basic knowledge of solar photovoltaic cells, modules and system components; electrical circuits; PV system design, estimation and code requirements; solar electric products and applications; an understanding of energy conversion from sunlight to electricity; and how to work with solar conversion equipment.
The course follows the Institute for Sustainable Power Quality standards and the NABCEP photovoltaic learning objectives and task analysis. Students who complete the course will be qualified to sit for the NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam, given on Friday evening at the conclusion of the class. Tuition for the training is $1,395.
