USSI Announces 2018 Class Session

The US Solar Institute, Florida’s Premier Solar Training College, Publishes 2018 Course Dates

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – South Florida’s one and only accredited solar training college has announced 2018 class session dates for the next calendar year. US Solar Institute has sold out every class for the past decade, and we expect 2018 to be no different. 2017’s last class session is well under way, and it got booked 5 weeks before it even started. USSI has been offering introductory and advanced, hands-on and online solar training classes for over 10 years, and our commitment to this industry gets stronger by the year. We believe that a growing industry must be led by true professionals, well versed in the mechanical and electrical aspects of the trade.

The most popular course is PV201, an introductory course on the design and installation of a solar array. It focuses mostly on how to measure, assemble, wire, and commission a solar system. It will take students from no knowledge in solar, to an entry level installer in just one week. The following course, PV301, is an electrician-level course, focusing mostly on preparing a permit-ready set of documents that will be submitted to the plan reviewer and approved to pull a building permit. The last course, and quite frankly the most important one, is a field training course, where the student is taken to a live, engineered, and permitted solar system, and assists in the installation and commission of a real system. One thing is practicing in mock roofs, under AC’s and shade, and another thing is being out on top of a roof for 8 hours a day, carrying 40 lb. solar panels. It is a completely different experience, and we try our hardest to mimic real-life scenarios in our training program, which is what makes us different from every other solar “training” center.

The class sessions are offered four times a year, once during each season. There are the winter, summer, autumn, and spring sessions. The classes are held Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm. The course dates are on the main image!
