Fast growth of an industry does produce some unique challenges. For the renewable energy industry, there is a shortage of trained and knowledgeable solar PV designers and installers. The Canadian Solar Institute (CSI) and her sister company Seaside Renewable Consulting have extensive experience designing and installing both grid-tie and off-grid solar PV as well as solar thermal and wind energy systems. Our instructors have both theoretical and practical experience allowing them to stay current with the latest in renewable energy technology.
Our most popular workshop is our 5-Day PV Design and Installation Workshop. The curriculum was designed by Mario Borsato, one of only a few NABCEP certified instructor/installers in Canada. Mario is trained in grid-tie and off-grid solar PV, solar thermal and wind energy systems. From his extensive training and field experience, Mario brings together both the theoretical and technical aspects of design and installation of solar PV systems in an engaging format that is enjoyable and stimulates excellence in learning.
Our workshops are both comprehensive and thorough. The modules will walk you through the basics of energy through to the complexities of solar PV systems and their design and installation. The workshops are intended to educate the beginner as well as the seasoned electrician.
The Canadian Solar Institute is committed to:
- Providing high quality education that combines theoretical and practical solar PV training.
- Teaching with integrity and professionalism.
- Helping businesses grow within the solar industry.
