If you are looking for a green job, you should consider entering the solar water heating industry. California operates the nation’s largest incentive program for solar water heating installations and recently extended rebates to include commercial swimming pools.

This June, CCSE is joining with National Solar Trainers in offering a comprehensive five-day training 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 solar water heating training typically costs $1,000-$2,000. CCSE is offering this discounted program to help further develop the San Diego solar marketplace through the California Solar Initiative Thermal Program.

Residential and commercial solar water heating installations are on the rise in California due to rebates provided by the California Solar Initiative and the program’s aggressive statewide marketing efforts promoting water heated by the sun.com. Businesses, residents and industry alike are rapidly becoming aware of solar water heating technologies and the benefits of lower energy costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

According to Sarah Smith, CCSE’s CSI-Thermal Program manager, “This training is a fantastic opportunity for companies and individuals who are already working in the areas of energy efficiency, plumbing, contracting and related industries to expand their business and broaden their skill set to include solar water heating.”

The training will cover all aspects of solar water heating from fundamentals and business practices to hands-on installation and prepare participants for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners Solar Water Heating Entry Level exam.

Whether you are new to the workforce, unemployed or changing careers, this training will give you the basic skills and information needed to advance in a career in the solar water heating industry.
