Course Description: This online solar training course, has been developed from the ground up with a strong focus on business principals and non-technical financial and economics topics, and is directly aligned with the NABCEP PV Technical Sales task analysis.  This workshop is for those currently working in the solar industry or hoping to work in solar sales. 

Through insightful presentations and instruction from working experts in the field, SEI’s PVOL206 Solar Business and Technical Sales covers marketing and sales techniques you will need to be successful. Concepts discussed in detail 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 PVOL206 Solar Business and Technical Sales workshop 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.   See our NABCEP information page at www.solarenergy.org/nabcep-certification or www.nabcep.org for more information on the additional requirements for the PV Technical Sales Certification.

Lessons Include:

    * Your Solar Business
    * Qualify the Customer
    * Preparing Proposals & Conceptual Design
    * Financial Cost, Incentives, and Savings
    * Financial Benefit Analysis and Financing
    * Non-financial Benefit Analysis

PVOL206 students receive 1 full year of FREE access to Solar PRO Magazine Online. You will receive your login in an email 3 to 4 weeks after your course starts.

We recommend taking PVOL206 Solar Business and Technical Sales in conjunction with SEI's technical training workshops - PV 101 and PV202 (Click here for descriptions of 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.  For information on SEI's Solar Professionals Certificate Program and our Solar Business and Technical Sales Certificate please click here.
