Don’t let the cold stop you from furthering your solar education – put classroom theory into practice with this five-day lab class that offers students the opportunity to work closely with experienced PV professionals and get their hands dirty by fully installing and commissioning a wide variety of system types before testing the system, then de-commissioning and breaking down.
You will work with modules, inverters, and racking components from a wide range of manufacturers that are all big players in the PV industry, all in a temperate environment. A low student-to-instructor ratio and the world-class lab facility at SEI’s Costa Rica location offers the perfect backdrop for your first hands-on PV experience.

The SEI Professional Services QA/QC Process:
Where Experience Meets Precision
Overview of our internal processes:
SEI Professional Services (SEIPS) embodies industry best practices and was formed from the network of Solar Energy International (SEI) instructors and solar professionals who serve SEI’s educational non-profit mission. It’s a natural fit for our team to represent the highest Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) standards in the industry. What we mean by this is that we live and breathe QA/QC – it’s in our DNA and is synonymous with SEI’s long standing reputation for quality in the solar industry.
Our design engineers and inspectors are intimately familiar with the codes, standards, and safety issues surrounding PV systems. In fact, a few of our staff members participate in writing some of the electrical codes and standards applicable to the PV industry.
