There are many options to gain PV knowledge at a variety of price points (his is in the middle), but it was important that I learn from a 'guru', who not only has the applied, real-world experienced background with technical expertise and knowledge, but I wanted to learn from someone who's passion REALLY IS PV... Sean's no dinosaur, but he's been in this industry before I was born ('83), but he's still in the top handful who are at the bleeding edge of its current state. It's his passion and it certainly comes through in the way he teaches. I'd say Sean is of the handful who not only write the books (literally) on the subject, but knows how to be a top-notch educator, and loves doing it too!”
- Michael M. - Solar Installer
The solar industry has become a practical and necessary part of our economy. Before I took this course I knew a fair amount about solar design and installations. What makes this course so great is that whether you are in your first or tenth year in the solar industry, everything you need to know to work in solar is explained. My personal favorites were the history of photovoltaics and understanding interpretations of the electrical code. If I had known this course was going to be anything like the way it is, I would have signed up for it years ago. Awesome class! Thanks HeatSpring.”
