TVA is making a difference in the lives of veterans and we want to continue to expand its reach

Scholarships are provided by The Veteran Asset (TVA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, who has provided the Entry Level Solar PV Design and Installation course and placement opportunities to veterans since May 2014. It is TVA’s mission to continue to offer this course at least once per month on an ongoing basis.

“This five-day course is the first building block of our TVA program,” said Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) United States Marine Corps, Scott Duncan, CEO of The Veteran Asset. “We have had a tremendous amount of enthusiasm from both the veteran community and employers, so we will continue to expand the course content and access to it. For example, we just announced the upcoming roll-out of our online course to address the veterans not located in our immediate vicinity. In addition, we are currently crafting an extended version of the class we offer today. TVA is making a difference in the lives of veterans and we want to continue to expand its reach.”

Scholarships are currently being offered for November and December 32-hour course, entitled Entry Level Solar PV Design and Installation, which is facilitated at Ambassador Energy’s training center in Murrieta, California. Veteran students attend a five-day classroom and hands-on course, followed by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Entry Level Exam on the fifth day. Upon graduation, veteran students are provided a certificate of completion. Their NABCEP test results will follow in coming weeks, however, their ability to list the coursework will immediately enhance their resumes.

TVA hand-selects recipients of the scholarships, based on a matrix including, but not limited to, Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), fitness, soft skills and attitude. Interested candidates, employers and donors should visit The Veteran Asset’s website.
