This detailed, step-by-step simulation-based course takes a learner through every step of installing a solar array on a residential roof. The course takes your employees from snapping lines and marking attachment locations to mounting modules to the proper torque value. The learner is able to practice a life-like solar installation in a safe environment, allowing them to better understand every step needed when actually on a roof.
Included in the Solar Job Ready Program.
Safely learn the steps needed to connect the electrical assembly of a solar array in a simulation-based environment. The Electrical Install Course includes a general overview of electrical concepts like tools and equipment, typical electrical components, wiring, conduit, and grounding. Then the learner engages with the simulation-based practice of locating and mounting equipment, routing and installing conduit, installing wiring, monitoring equipment installation, and labeling.
The Site Assessment Course begins with overviews of tools and equipment used in the site survey process as well as overviews of roof construction and roof type. Then the learner gets to engage in a series of site assessment simulations including roof condition, attic assessment, shading calculations, ground and roof hazards, and service panel compatibility.
In this simulation-based course, your installers will learn how to energize and confirm the proper operation of all electrical components and confirm the actual output is as expected.
This course allows current or aspiring Crew Leads and electricians to troubleshoot dozens of different real-world scenarios. First, you are walked through each problem scenario in a 'learning mode' where step-by-step instructions lead to problem resolution. Then you can enter the 'challenge mode' where you must recall what you have learned and navigate to the solution on your own. This approach is quite different from traditional lecture-based instruction and really engages the practical-minded solar installer.
