About the program

We believe in doing our part in protecting the planet from the effects of climate change. We launch fulfilling careers for those who want to make an impact and we equip you with leading-edge knowledge and skills to be successful and make a difference in the solar and renewable energy industries.

The time is NOW for a career in Solar Energy!

  • The price of solar energy is now less expensive than nearly all other technologies, including coal and natural gas.
  • Legislation is in place to ensure the move from a fossil fuel energy economy to one of renewable energy.
  • We presently are only generating 1% of our electricity from solar energy. That leaves room for decades of great careers in the industry.

We are offering a 16-credit, fully online Solar Assessor certificate, which will enable you to become a Solar Energy Assessor or Installer. It is possible to complete this certificate in one semester or approximately 4 months. The certificate is available in both the Fall and Spring semesters.
