Custom In-person Trainings
SEI provides private trainings at your facility where we develop a custom course based on your needs and send SEI instructors to lead the class. We’ll take care of the curriculum, participant materials and travel arrangements for the instructors. We typically recommend a group of 10-25 for cost effectiveness and most trainings are 3-5 days depending on content.

Tuition Discount for employees/members
If your company is looking to provide training to ten or more employees or members, SEI can provide a special pricing program to meet your training needs. SEI’s range of introductory and advanced courses can serve as foundational training for employees new to the solar industry or as advancement and continuing education for existing employees. Once your special pricing program is complete, your employee can simply use your company discount to enroll in online or in-person training that works with their schedule and meets your training goals.

Hands-on Installation and O&M Trainings
SEI’s experienced instructors lead practical, hands-on trainings at your PV facilities or at SEI’s Lab Facilities in Colorado, Costa Rica and/or Oman.

That depends on how much you want to learn! Typical trainings are 3-5 days but can be multiple weeks if you are looking for advanced and/or multiple topics.

SEI travels all over the world to conduct solar trainings! We can most likely travel to your location. However, if there is a security or logistics concern that could prevent us from traveling to you, we can work with you to find a location that will be suitable for the training.

SEI courses are available in English and Spanish.

SEI is pleased to work with a myriad of companies, universities and other organizations to provide trainings throughout the world. In order to reach our broadest audience, we are not looking for exclusive partners or agents at this time. However, we can work with you to offer SEI’s trainings on a contract basis or discuss other options to work together.
