Feedback from our customers -

November 2016 workshop:

 

“This is one of the best courses I have ever taken (30+ years as an engineer and thermographer with lots of continuing educations classes).  Lots of practical information and examples – all the instructors are knowledgeable and have tons of experience in the industry.”

- Alan K., Civil Engineer & Inspector

 

“The course provided a complete ‘snapshot’ of how to work and install solar.  Great presentation! Mike Kuhn’s love for solar came through his explanations, and allowed for open discussions among the class participants.”

- Todd S., Entrepreneur

 

“Valuable real-life experiences conveyed to the class.  Online resource is very helpful.  I liked the discussions regarding application to actual installation situations.”

- Linda H., Solar Business Owner

 

“Wonderful instructors with great information and insight into the solar industry.”

- Jon M., Electrician

 

“I enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions and especially the time taken (by each instructor) to provide a thorough response.  I also like that multiple people taught the class – this allowed different perspectives to be appreciated.”

- Gary G., M.S., MBA, Entrepreneur

 

“Verbal and written material was very exemplary, well organized!  Good mix of reading, video, problems, lab, exercise, lecture, etc.”

- Larry K., P.E., J.D.

 

“All the instructors were very knowledgeable in all aspects of the industry.  The hands-on approach was very important!”

- David K., Solar Business Owner

 

“All questions answered, logical order, love the handouts;  I was curious as to how the industry has changed in twenty years – I think it is time to jump in!”

- Bob W., Master Electrician
