With the increasing number of solar PV systems installed all around the world, including Singapore, there is the need to have more trained professionals to help carry out this growth. The training course is a basic but very informative 2-day introduction to help students understand about the workings of Solar PV energy systems and perhaps enlighten them to proceed further into developing solar PV studies and engineering.

This basic course will cover the fundamental subjects such as energy and energy effciency in the home/ business, discuss the best ways to capture sunlight and takes a look at the system design and operational workshops of these individual components that are connected together to create a solar PV system.
