Greetings from Solar Energy International (SEI)!
During these challenging times as a global community combating the COVID-19 outbreak, we are facing an unprecedented battle. We wanted to reach out to all of our students, alumni, employers, and supporters to let you know SEI is open for business and that we are pushing forward with our mission. SEI is here to serve the world to provide the tools and resources you need to achieve your renewable energy education goals.
With that said, we are taking steps to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students by postponing all in-person training that was scheduled for March through May, but we will have an expanded focus and training options through the SEI Online Campus during that time.
Communities all over the world are being taken out of their normal routines with family, friends, co-workers, clients, and neighbors. As the world’s leading non-profit educational organization dedicated to renewable energy training, we are faced with the challenge of how to continue making our industry-leading technical training and expertise in renewable energy accessible to all during this difficult time apart from one another.
The SEI Global Solar Connection Initiative
To combat the growing sense of isolation and disconnection, we are launching the SEI Global Solar Connection Initiative! The purpose of this initiative is to create a global sense of connection and community around renewable energy education while we adopt social distancing and self quarantining efforts in the battle against this COVID-19 virus.
In recent days, multiple solar professionals and employers in the solar industry have reached out to SEI to ask about what kinds of additional online and virtual training opportunities we could offer to help keep driving the industry forward. With so many people now working from home and unable to perform their job functions on job sites or in offices all over the world, there is a silver lining to these challenges. SEI is expanding our contribution to the global solar community through more online educational opportunities to meet the professional development needs of our industry and keep our community connected.
It is important to note that SEI already offers the largest online learning community in the world dedicated to renewable energy education through the SEI Online Campus! As of today, we have over 75,000 people enrolled in the SEI Online Campus and we are prepared to grow our global impact exponentially in the coming months.
We want to invite the global community of renewable energy practitioners to use this time wisely to expand their technical knowledge. For those who want to get into this industry, we invite you to come together virtually, get trained and discover new and rewarding career opportunities.
