Certificate in PV Technician

In light of the fast-declining state of the environment and the world’s ecological balance, sustainability as a concept has become a driving principle of almost every country today. Owing to the rapidly falling reserves of conventional sources of energy, the adoption of renewable energy has emerged as a critical need of the hour.

Government's ambitious goal of achieving 175 GW renewable energy generating capacity by 2022, has led to the industry seeing an almost 100 percent year-on-year growth, further indicating its massive potential for job creation. The solar industry, especially the development of a solar power plant, comprises of several stages, with multiple roles involved in each. This presents a critical requirement for skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled labor.

Institute of Solar Technology is offering Certificate in PV Technician course, certified by University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun, Uttrakhand to understand the different aspects of solar energy engineering. This course is designed to offer flexibility and tailor made to the market requirement with deep understanding on the subjects. Students completing this course will be equipped with advanced and updated skills required to design, technological evaluations and evaluate the technical and economic viability of PV solar energy and energy efficiency projects.

TRAINING METHODOLOGY:

Live Interactive Classes::

IST Live Interactive Class, where students and teachers meet together at schedule class time with whiteboard, voice and live video, Lectures and Question answer occur at the same hour.

Our expert faculty members take session on each paper that is delivered through live sessions. These sessions are joined by students from India and Abroad. Trainers will discuss in each class session about Key concepts, whiteboard calculation, design, case studies and real life examples. Students also get chance to clarify their doubts / academic clarifications. If by any chance you miss these live classes, don't worry, each class recorded sessions are uploaded in the IST E-Library/LMS.
