Live Webinar: Advancing Solar Professionalism

Webinar calendar pdhAuthor: John Cromer
When it comes time to install a solar power array, what installation and safety tips are worth knowing? This program blends together a discussion of workmanship, project safety, project tools, engineering calculations, and installation techniques to help those already planning a solar project to extend their project knowledge that much further. This program compliments our other solar-themed programs by instructor John Cromer, serving as a catch-all to cover topics previously not discussed in other programs.

This Live Webinar serves as good solar training for any technical professional considering adding a solar power project to their home or business, with a little more emphasis on field skills than in the other more design-oriented programs. Sometimes, building professionals need a class focused on advanced project details for both the project manager and crew when preparing for an electrical installation. If you are thinking about obtaining industry certification or are planning a solar project in the future, this class is for you.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understand solar industry certification can compliment a professional engineering career.
  • Detail advanced electrical system material.
  • Identify key roofing components, loads, and warranty issues.
  • Review project permit documentation including interconnection applications.
  • Identify site safety issues common to solar project sites.
  • Discuss proper material handling of solar panels, inverters, and racking systems.
  • Understand how installation procedure impacts code compliance
  • Review industry construction practices such as squaring a racking system or flashing a flat roof penetration.
