5 reasons to sign up for the SuperSolarSchool
Jump right in with SuperSolarSchool
The SuperSolarSchool is a 5-day comprehensive training that provides participants with everything they need to know about solar PV. We call it the Mercedes of our beginner courses. In the 5 days of training, we set a strong focus on practical application. You start as a beginner but you’ll walk out ready to get on site.
You learn in detail about electrotechnical basics and functionality of PV systems, how to correctly install systems according to national and international standards. Planning, design, and management of a project are also part of the learning outcomes together with sizing the system including the battery pack according to the client’s requirements.
If this sounds tough to you, it definitely is! But no worries, we know how to structure training in a way that you learn, not that your head explodes.
Here are 5 reasons why you should sign up for the SuperSolarSchool
1. Electricity is a basic need for the economy.
Energy is a big crisis in South Africa, we all suffer from it. And it’s not only that we can’t watch TV at night without power, it is severely impacting the economy’s development. Businesses and factories are limited by the lack of power and much needed economic growth is slowed down.
On the other hand, solar energy is one of the most readily accessible resources in South Africa. We have so much sun! The country’s solar industry is professionalising from day to day and provides the South African economy with an excellent opportunity to thrive. And no matter what happens, demand for reliable electricity will always be there.
2. The industry is Covid-proof.
2020 showed that the PV industry’s growth cannot be stopped, not even by a worldwide pandemic. Actually the opposite is the case, the solar industry provided an alternative to many who lost their jobs, we strongly noticed that in our trainings. The majority of the installers in our network confirmed, they were impacted by the lockdown restrictions but the demand did not cease to grow.
3. Skilled installers are desperately needed!
The African continent has an energy crisis and slowly Renewable energy is becoming the future and solution to the energy crisis. With this said there is a rise in the demand for skilled installers. Within our network, across our Whatsapp group and LinkedIn we see job postings every day. But of course companies are looking for people who bring the company forward and can contribute. So education and training is key.
A bonus is, the SuperSolarSchool is the official PV GreenCard training!
4. There is a niche for you.
PV offers a variety of jobs, no matter if you’re super technical or not, you can find something that fits your interest & skills. From technical people to marketing and sales, all kinds of people are needed in a solar company. All you have to do is to start somewhere. Familiarising yourself with what is happening in the industry is the first step. Attend the SuperSolarSchool is the next step. The PV industry has a lot of aspects to it, from technical, sales, marketing, design and planning, installations, calculations, and many others. When you decide to join the industry “find your niche, find what you are good at”.
