This program prepares students for jobs installing, designing, servicing and maintaining solar energy systems. Students can choose either of two areas of specialization. Students who focus on photovoltaic systems will be able to work with residential, commercial and industrial size photovoltaic systems. Many of the skills learned in these courses relate to solar thermal systems as well. The following photovoltaic required courses are part of the Electricians Trainee Program and approved by the Division of Apprenticeship Standards: Electricity 120, 121, 266, 267. Students who focus on solar thermal systems will be prepared for careers installing, designing, servicing, and maintaining solar thermal systems. Successful completers of this program will be able to work with residential, commercial, and industrial-size solar thermal systems. Solar thermal systems include domestic water heating, radiant floor heating, swimming pool, and spa heating systems. Solar air heating and cooling systems are currently under development, and will be included once established. Many of the skills learned in the solar thermal courses relate to photovoltaic systems as well. The following solar thermal required courses are part of the electricians’ trainee program and are approved by the Division of Apprenticeship Standards: Electricity 120 and 266.
