Boots on The Roof's new Online Solar PV Training course is setting a new benchmark for online renewable energy education. The Photovoltaic Design Foundations class provides engaging online learning with professional audio narration, animation, video and exercises.
The downturn in the economy has prevented many eager students from pursuing their interest in renewable energy, due to high training costs. Boots on The Roof has made it easier to enter the solar field by offering an affordable alternative- The online Solar PV training course. With the pressures of meeting daily professional and personal commitments, many students needed the flexibility to juggle jobs and personal time and complete the training in a self paced environment. The course allows these students to take four to seven weeks to complete the course, and earn a Boots Entry-level Photovoltaic Design certification. The enrollment and class scheduling take just minutes at http://www.bootsontheroof.com. Representatives and live chat can help with any questions or problems. Photovoltaic systems, site evaluation, cells and modules, mechanical integration, system components, battery systems and charge controllers and economic analysis are just some of the key topics included in this comprehensive course.
Navraj Bawa, Executive VP at Boots on the Roof mentioned "We noticed a very real lack of high quality online courses in the solar training market. There are a few courses available, but they felt more like reading a really expensive book, than taking an online course. We were determined to create a course that resembles a classroom experience, and I am happy to say that our team has delivered a fantastic product. We will now be working with universities and colleges throughout the world to bring quality online solar education to the masses".
Another uniqueness of the course is that Boots on the Roof is the only Solar training provider in the United States that offers an entire solar kit including real solar PV cells, DC motors and a multi-meter for every student enrolled in the Online Solar Training course. Solar energy is a hands-on field, and working with solar cells helps the students to really internalize the concepts.
