The solar installation sector has seen significant growth over the last few years, accounting for 12,500 new workers in 2013. Installation jobs are appealing due to both increasing demand and generous wages. However, getting started in the solar installation sector, and staying up to date with the newest products and current state of the art for design and installation methods, can be a challenge – even for experienced contractors. Intersolar has partnered with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) and designed a new workshop series to have attendees leave with new skills and the confidence to navigate in this rapidly evolving industry.
Exhibitor Installation Workshops
NABCEP and Intersolar have selected 12 exhibiting companies to offer in-depth
technical training workshops over three days of the conference and exhibition.
Attendees will earn 3 NABCEP CEUs for each half-day workshop. These workshops will bring you up to speed on the latest technologies and best practices for the design, installation, and maintenance of code-compliant PV systems. Register onlineor on-site at Moscone Center West ($50 per workshop).
