Projects + TRainings
We'll be partnering with the #1 solar electric training organization in the United States - Solar Energy International (SEI). Two separate weeks of training at RCREC, then a two week stay in Colorado at SEI headquarters where you'll take your solar certification testing upon completion. After these four courses are complete you'll be the trainer for your first supervised workshop in October. All expenses paid including lodging and food, transportation to RCREC and SEI excluded. Some solar experience necessary. Click here for more about the Solar Tribal Train the Trainer Project!
