Since 2012 we have been offering training courses in South Africa. Up to now, 2600 participants have been trained by GREEN Solar Academy in Africa.
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.
Social Development Fund
In November 2019, we realised an inhouse training for the Social Development Fund in Kuruman. 10 young participants were selected to attend a 5-day basic training course in Kuruman which gave them some practical insights into the field of solar energy as possible career choice.
