Best-qualified Solar Trainers | GREEN Trainer Team

Our Trainers

Our trainer team consist of a diverse mix of people with all kinds of background. Many with years of experience in solar PV and others that only joined a few years ago. The idea is to create always the best learning experience for our participants. That sometimes means to go into technical detail but very often, like for a beginner course, it means to keep things simple. For every course and skill level, we have the right trainer.

Nevertheless, all GREEN Solar Academy trainers undergo a standardised procedure to be trained before they receive the official trainer accreditation.  Besides technical competence in solar PV we also focus on the ability to use teaching methods and deliver a practical and interesting training course. Learn more about our training of trainers here.

Up to now, our team consists of over 20 trainers, many with impressive backgrounds and skills and definitely all with a big heart for renewable energy!

Braulio has a Master Degree in Renewable Energy and is an engineer from the bottom of his heart!
