The Halsey Street Solar Photovoltaic (PV) training program was devised to prepare students with little or no construction experience to be entry level solar PV panel installers.

This entry level course curriculum features the study of solar PV system components, electrical circuits, PV system design, troubleshooting PV systems, and the installation of solar PV panels on residential and commercial roofs.  In addition, participants will receive OSHA 10 and First Aid training, which are required to be eligible to work at a commercial construction site.
