  • Level 1: Solar Electric Certification Course (5-Day)

    Time: 12:00 am - 11:59 pm 

    Want to learn how to install solar? Maybe you even want to become certified to work in the solar field. Now you can spend just five days of training (4 1/2 classroom instruction and 1/2 day taking the certification test) in a relaxed setting - to realize your goal.

    This course is ideal for those interested in installing a DIY system or gain entry into the field of solar installation. No previous experience necessary. Learn more and register at www.bluerockstation.com. This workshop is sponsored by Blue Rock Station Green Living Center, UpGrade Athens County, and Rural Action.

    Space is limited and registration with Blue Rock Station is required for this event. $930 for Rural Action Members.

    This course prepares you to sit for the ETA Photovoltaic Installer (PVI) Level 1. It is the first level of ETA's certifications designed to assess renewable energy professionals. It is also a great first step for those seeking to enter the PV industry, and perhaps later prepare to sit for the NABCEP PV certification program. More information available at http://eta-i.org/
