Over the last year, Solar Energy International has seen the renewable energy industry grow by leaps and bounds. We have received an overwhelming interest from our students and alumni for more business-focused curriculum that relies on SEI's 20 years of solar business experience and industry relationships.

SEI is listening.

In response to the demand for comprehensive solar business training, Solar Energy International introduces its new PVOL206: Solar Business and Technical Sales online course for those working in the solar industry or hoping to work in solar sales. PVOL206 Solar Business and Technical Sales has been developed from the ground up with a strong focus on business principals and topics directly aligned with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) PV Technical Sales task analysis. Through insightful presentations and instruction from working experts in the field, SEI's PV206 Solar Business and Technical Sales online course covers marketing and sales techniques you need to be successful. The course runs from Nov. 15 to Dec. 19 at an affordable $495.00.

Solar Business and Technical Sales Concepts discussed in detail in  include: customer qualification, solar site analysis, creating conceptual design proposals, system costing, incentives and rebates, cost-benefit analyses, financing options, and the non-financial benefits of photovoltaic systems.

While certain aspects of the  course will be a review for students who have previously taken SEI's PV204 or PV205, this workshop offers a broad curriculum based on the NABCEP PV Technical Sales Job Task Analysis to help prepare participants for the NABCEP PV Technical Sales Certification.

We recommend taking PVOL206  in conjunction with SEI's technical training workshops - PV 101 and PV202 (Click here for descriptions PV workshop and courses). Those completing ALL THREE courses will have the technical training necessary to help direct a potential solar PV site from initial analysis to successful design and installation.

Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for PV206, however we recommend that students take at minimum PV 101 or PV 101 online to obtain a baseline level of technical PV training.
