Solar Energy International (SEI) has been selected as the training provider for three international conferences in the Middle East region. SEI has been invited by the conference organizers from the respective events to execute trainings on topics ranging from introductions to grid-tied and battery based systems to advanced PV system operation and maintenance workshops. SEI will lead trainings at the following the conferences in 2016:  Intersolar Middle East in September 19th-21st in Dubai, the Dubai Solar Show from October 4th-6th, and Solar-Tec Egypt held in Cairo from December 4th-6th. SEI will also be an exhibitor at these conferences and SEI alumni and friends are encouraged to visit the booth and register for the trainings if they are in the region.

These custom workshops are developed utilizing SEI’s peer-reviewed curriculum. The content is developed by our in-house PV Curriculum team of solar professionals. The organization has been providing renewable energy training for the past 25 years and has trained over 45,000 people from around the world. Since their founding in 1991, they have trained over 1,000 people from the MENA region with an increasing presence at conferences and and contract trainings in the area.

The training events will be led by Kristopher Sutton, the Director of Operations at Solar Energy International.  He regularly leads technical trainings on the design, installation and maintenance of photovoltaic (PV) systems and serves as a technical project manager at SEI Professional Services “SEI is proud to be selected as the training provider for so many conferences in the region.
