Inhouse and Custom Trainings

Inhouse trainings are a great opportunity for companies who want to train larger groups of staff or are based in remote areas. We offer inhouse trainings, clients can choose from our existing course range or request a tailored-course that fits exactly their requirements and skills levels of the participants. Even practical training elements can be included, either at the client’s own premises or at one of our traning centres in Johannesburg or Cape Town.

GREEN Solar Academy has already delivered inhouse trainings for a variety of companies.

Ronald Baxter
SANRAL Technical Innovations / 2018 Alumni SuperSolarSchool

I'm from SANRAL Technical Innovation. We are expanding on our road network so we have a few renewable energy sites and therefor we need the best design so myself and two of my colleagues attended the course. And it was really fun! We had workshops and hands-on experiments with the tools. Thank you very much! It was a really well presented course and I really enjoyed it!

Scott Andrew

I did the Sunrise Intermediate course in 2014. We were a plumbing company and wanted to become a solar company. After 6 months we set up our own operation, paid school fees in the early years, went to China and ended up now using Victron. I am now the biggest seller for Victron equipment in Africa and the second biggest in the world. When I started, the course gave me an understanding in how to approach solar. A tip I give to all the people I get requests from is to take advantage of opportunities at the time!

Fikile Khiva

I highly recommend whoever is interested in solar energy, maybe as a consultant or as a technician or just a project manager. So for me the academy has done a great job, in fact it’s align to my future going forward in terms of business opportunities. Thank you very much!
