Renewable Energy Training…
An SEI student adventures abroad while studying and installing solar.
A 5kw solar PV installation is established at a cultural center in Hue, Vietnam
Trevor Schwartz, an American SEI student, began his travels abroad in January 2020 with the intention of eventually arriving in Nepal to participate in a GRID Alternatives volunteer solar installation. But after COVID-19 struck, he was forced to prolong his stay in Hue City, Vietnam, where he studied through SEI’s Online Campus and eventually had the opportunity to experience how solar PV providers in Vietnam operate. After creating a connection with a local solar PV provider, Trevor aided in an entire solar PV installation at a cultural center, among other solar business processes.
“It was eye opening – I witnessed how their practices differ from standard business and installation practices in the US. Nonetheless, it was a positive experience, and the solar energy market in Vietnam seems to be growing rapidly with a lot of potential. I was fortunate to be taking online courses with SEI during this time, and was able to share some information I had learned with the employees of the solar PV company in Hue,” Trevor said.
SEI’s online training effectively provided Trevor with the flexibility to adventure out, learn solar and apply his knowledge – all at the same time. No matter where you live, or how adventurous your life may be, SEI’s Online Campus is here to serve you with valuable solar PV training anytime, anywhere.
