"I very much enjoyed it and it made a lot more sense than the self study solar class I did in the past."
"I was very impressed by the on-line and face to face portions of the training. The online training was comprehensive and thorough and the instructors were knowledgable and appeared enthusiastic about photovoltaic systems. The training followed a logical process that enhanced my understanding of safety and application of basic principles for solar powered systems. Ken's ability to relate to the industry and some of its pitfalls were top notch. The power point presentation effectively demonstrated solar systems. He employed great techniques in gaining the interaction of the class and we all benefited from his level of expertise."
"I would like to thank CleanEdison. Just finished my photovoltaic bootcamp in Lancaster, CA"
"Thank you so much, everything was amazing. The online course was really informative, with the fast-paced nature of the live course, I would've been lost without it. I'm already putting my new skills to use, getting enough installs to be ready for the NABCEP exam in October. I'll recommend anyone I come across to you guys. Thanks again."
