Basic Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Technology: A Flexible Learning Course
The aim of this course is to equip you with skills on how to design and install home solar systems. In Kenya, Solar PV systems have a vibrant market. Unfortunately, the sector does not have enough trained and experienced practitioners who can design and install systems. It is dominated by non-specialist technician who have no solar PV training. As a result, most solar systems installed in the country perform poorly and eventually fail, leading to the widespread perception in the market that solar systems do not work. Therefore, the goal of this course is to improve access to training and produce professional technicians in Solar PV System. // This technician course is designed for practicing electricians who have basic skills in electrical, mechanical or electronics field. The course lays emphasis on developing practical and theoretical knowledge and skills in basic solar PV technology, products and systems.
