The Academia de Profesionales Solares de las Americas (APSA) is a Project of Solar Energy International (SEI), funded by the Energy & Climate Partnership of the Americas through the United States State Department. APSA trained 50 people, representing countries and communities throughout Central America and Mexico to design, install, and maintain solar PV energy systems and to successfully launch and administer businesses in this critically important industry.

Students accepted in to the program participated in SEI’s Spanish PV online courses, which covered Grid-tied and Battery-based PV education. After completion of the online courses, the students complted a 6-day hands-on PV workshop at the Earth University- La Flor in Liberia, Costa Rica.
