This course is a great first step for a career-focused individual to understand the world of renewable energy possibilities, and also serves as an introduction to Solar Energy International’s Online Campus. It is not a technical course. It is made up of ten lessons, each containing a lecture-capture video presentation by an SEI instructor, readings, a quiz, and discussion forums. Your work will be saved as you go and you can return to it later for up to 120 days after you register.
The development of this course was funded in part by the Putnam Foundation.
