Advanced Certificate in Rooftop Solar Professionals

The robust growth of the Indian solar rooftop market can be attributed to the government's initiative of installing 40GW of solar energy capacity by 2022. Building smart cities is also contributing to the growth of the market. The industry exhibited an increase in solar rooftop capacity addition from 38 MW in 2012 to 3855 MW in 2019, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of ~116% during the (2019-2024) period.

Institute of Solar Technology offering certificate in rooftop solar system course to equipped you a strong knowledge to understand of Basic concepts of Rooftop solar power plant, Efficient working at every stage of safety, designing, installation, pre-and post-commissioning, O&M, understand Certification & National level policies of Rooftop SPV plants.


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, costing, documentation, 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.

Hands-on Practical

We know that only theoretical knowledge by online or virtual classes are not sufficient to get full expertise. An individual needs a practical exposure to flourish in a Job or business market. So we offer practical session at IST Power plant after completion of live interactive online classroom session .In this approach a trainees can fulfill his/her knowledge in a very effective way and time.

We offer project-based blended learning experiences that promote academic and career success for Technical Education.

Traditional Learning vs. IST Skill Training

Education is all about learning the theory. Traditionally, an education may reinforce knowledge in which that you already have a foundation.
And that's where IST Skill training differs; IST training gives you the skills to do something rather than just know about something. Training can be specific to your need, your work experience or your skills-gap.
