Solar Energy Schools

by Green Jobs Ready on February 10, 2010


Solar energy classes are being offered in the growing solar tech field. As the increase for alternative fuel sources is being pushed through government programs, solar school curriculum prepare students to become certified in different areas of the field. Solar schools offer Associate of Applied Science Renewable Energy Specialization programs along with Solar Thermal Power and Solar Photovoltaic courses. Some solar school classes may reside within other areas of universities, colleges and trade schools. Undergraduate courses are offered in solar energy systems and design, while some solar energy programs may reside in Mechanical engineering courses. Whatever the area of solar technology, it is anticipated that there will not be enough trained and certified personnel to fill job opportunities.

While the economy has taken many job markets and wrecked havoc, the solar technology and emerging “green” collar jobs is growing faster than the economy. It is expected that between 16 and 37 million workers will be in the alternative fuel jobs within the next two decades. This is part of the government’s programs in public schools where solar energy is already being taught to school age children. Unfortunately, the adult population is fairly unknowledgeable of this growing field.

There are many sources to find more information regarding solar school classes, and many communities are offering smaller workshops to offer natural building tips using renewable and sustainable energy sources. Existing construction is finding more clients demanding solar systems as tax credits, utility rebates and energy cost savings make them too good to pass up. Those that are trained and certified in designing, engineering, installing and wiring them will have the upper advantage on these types of jobs. Whether you are an existing electrician, engineer or installer, it is to your advantage to go to solar school to get the knowledge and certifications that are available.

Boots on the Roof is currently enrolling students into its upcoming Solar PV training boot camp. To learn more about dates, locations, and course details,  click here.
