    “The Solar Institute has been a valued training partner for students interested in expanding their PVT education and knowledge." - Joan MacMillan, Continuing Education, Seneca College

    “Mario is a thoroughly knowledgeable and personable instructor and the Canadian Solar Institute is a positive, professional group of people who are a pleasure to work with. I am going to hire CSI again, as soon as I can. We already have 15 people on a waiting list! Stay tuned!” - Cathy Cottrell Senior Energy Advisor,Energy Solutions Centre, Energy, Mines and Resources Yukon Government

    "We hosted this course at College of the Rockies, and were very impressed with the quality of theory training and practical hands on sessions. We hire instructors from across Canada, and Mario’s enthusiasm for the material and his knowledge of solar systems was impressive. The participants raved about the course and now have the skills to install their own solar system. We’ve become a partner with the Canadian Solar Institute and will be hosting them continuously at the Gold Creek Campus of the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook B.C. We’re looking forward to it!."-Tracey Whiting Manager, Continuing Education and Contract Training
