student REVIEWS

what Our Trainees have to say

"I recently took the five day solar panel installation course, it was full of all the information I had hoped for and more. Solar energy is a great way of not only reducing our environmental footprint, but also reducing home energy costs. Just figuring out how much energy your household uses is enough to make anyone want to reduce usage. If we were all to reduce wasteful energy usage, we would all win, and help our environment."
