DON’T be a solar know-it-all, or maybe you actually DO know it all? See how your skills stack up with SEI’s NEW solar skills assessment!
For those of you feeling confident in your level of knowledge in your current solar job, don’t succumb to a growing trend: being a solar know-it-all. Don’t worry, we have a solution.
SEI has developed a free assessment tool for solar professionals to gauge their “solar smarts.” Solar installation teams and others in the industry can use this tool to pinpoint where additional formal training may be needed. Check out the full article featured on Solar Power World.
Solar Energy Trade Shows, LLC (SETS) Selects Solar Energy International (SEI) as Exclusive Conference Training Provider
Alexandria, VA (October 1, 2019) – Solar Energy Trade Shows, LLC (SETS), the team behind SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week, announced a new expanded partnership with Solar Energy International (SEI) to implement installer training content across select events within the Solar Power Events portfolio.
As the solar industry is expanding, so too are the job opportunities. With solar installer jobs not only representing the largest share of employment, but additionally being the fastest growing occupation in the U.S., adding a key installer focus throughout all events is necessary.
“Our goal is to promote a strong, growing renewable energy industry and provide installer educational content in markets we serve,” said Gary Thuro, Chief Marketing & Sales Officer, Solar Energy Trade Shows. “Working with SEI was an obvious choice.” Read the full announcement.
Solar Energy International (SEI) was chosen as a recipient of Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF)’s 2019 Environment grant, and the $5,000 will be put toward “reduce, reuse and recycle” efforts in their Paonia-based industry-leading lab yard.
SEI is one of the longest running and most widely recognized technical solar training organizations in the industry. Over 70,000 alumni worldwide have been through SEI trainings, and SEI’s alumni network has been involved in approximately 10 percent of global solar systems. New sustainability upgrades on campus will further support SEI’s core mission of sustainability and “a world powered by renewable energy.”
Some of the upgrades students can expect to see are iPads in lieu of paper-bound notebooks, hand dryers in the student lounge and commercial composting systems.
SEI is honored to announce a partnership with Etihad ESCO! Etihad ESCO is a Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) venture, established in 2013 to make Dubai’s built environment a leading example of energy efficiency for the region and the world.
