Certificates & Solar Training Accreditation National and International
Certificates & Accreditation
What you get
Upon successful completion of the training course, all participants get a certificate of participation which is internationally recognized. Then the participants can do the related course exam if they wish to test their knowledge. If they pass they are awarded a certificate of achievement by GREEN and DGS. The accreditation goes a long way to position the skilled labor ready to move the nation towards achieving its renewable energy goals and giving confidence to investors with the international accreditation.
International Accreditation by DGS – German Solar Energy Society
All our courses are internationally recognized and are accredited by DGS Germany (The German Solar Energy Society). The DGS is the oldest consumer protection association in Germany, founded in 1975. The DGS has multiple active members who work on bringing the PV industry forward in Germany and to the world. The main focus of the DGS is education. The DGS has long term experience in renewable energy training worldwide. Since 1996 DGS operates the further education programme DGS SolarSchool. With the maxx-solar academy, the DGS established a DGS SolarSchool branch in South Africa and the GREEN Solar Academy now continues with training as a partner organization of the DGS.
National accreditation and collaboration
Currently there is no accreditation for a PV solar short course in Ghana. This is due to PV solar being part of many faculties such as electrical and civil engineering as well as construction. This is why it is difficult to find a specific accredited short course in PV solar.
However, GREEN is in collaboration with Takoradi Technical University to change this. Together we are working on creating a PV solar course for the students at the university. This is a springboard to the creation of a nationally accredited short course for PV solar which would be advantageous considering the potential for the growth of renewable and solar energy in the country.
