Incredibly reduced price for solar water heating training
If you have ever wanted to learn about and enter into the solar water heating industry January 2013 is the time. CCSE is joining with National Solar Trainers (NST) in offering two-day and five-day workshops geared toward preparing participants to become Solar Thermal installers, designers, sales and marketing professionals or entrepreneurs – at less than 10 percent of the normal cost.
Professional, in-depth solar water heating training typically costs $1,000-$2,000, but this discounted training is being offered in support of further developing the San Diego solar marketplace through the California Solar Initiative Thermal Program. This training is a fantastic opportunity for companies and individuals who are already working in the areas of energy efficiency, plumbing, contracting and other related industries to expand their businesses and broaden their skillset to include solar water heating, according to Jordan DiGiorgio, CCSE’s Solar Thermal program manager.
Residential and commercial solar water heating installations are on the rise in California due to the recently increased rebates given by the California Solar Initiative and the program’s aggressive statewide marketing efforts. People are rapidly becoming aware of current solar water heating technologies and their value proposition to lower energy costs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The workshop series will cover all aspects of solar water heating from fundamentals to business practices to hands-on installation. It is designed to prepare participants for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Solar Water Heating Entry Level exam. The trainings will be held at SDG&E’s Energy Innovation Center in North Clairemont.
Whether you are new to the workforce, unemployed or changing careers, these workshops will give you the basic skills and information needed to advance your career in the solar water heating industry.
