Training modules include: Basic Math for PV Installation and Design; Electricity Basics for Photovoltaic; Introduction to National Electrical Code; Green Building Today; Basic Computer Skills; Introduction to PV Design and Installation; OSHA Electrical Review; and a paid internship with a solar company.

This program may be funded by the Atlantic County One Stop Services Center for eligible participants. For more information on the solar installation training program, contact Carol Fraone at cfraone@atlantic.edu or (609) 343-5650.
