Advanced Solar Electric Academy 2015

MATC Highlights

The Madison Area Technical College (MATC) / SEI Advanced Solar Electric Academy was a huge success this week! Students completed a packed week of solar PV hands-on training, focusing on grid-direct systems, battery systems, and small, low-cost systems that can easily be replicated in their classrooms.

“For educators, the process of instructional delivery is excellent: small group instruction, problem solving, questioning method; SEI sets the STANDARD”. Quote from an Advanced Solar Electric Academy Student

SEI Solar Ready Vets Alumni Highlight:

U.S. Marines Veteran & Solar City’s Vicente Coronado

Vincente CoronadoGetting my training through SEI has provided me with the knowledge and experience that has allowed me to use my technical skills towards the solar industry for my fast accelerating career within the industry. I would like to say that all the instructors were very knowledgeable and did a great job making us understand all the technical concepts needed to break into this industry.

I am a very hands on person so the practical application was the best part of the training for me. Having all the class work all paid off as soon as we were outside being able to apply what we had learned in class.

I started working with SolarCity March 30th, 2015 as an Apprentice. The knowledge I gained from the SEI training program and my determination has resulted in me being promoted to a Senior Installer all within three months, and I will not stop there.  The company I work for has provided me the opportunity to go as far as my determination will take me, so growing is all on the individual and I accept the invitation.   – Vicente Coronado
