Increasing the Sustainability of Renewable Energy Technical Training

Webinar Course in real time

Date: 30 November 2017 @ 15:00 CET - (check your local time)

Speaker: Geoff Stapleton, PVPS Task 9 Expert Australia

Duration: 1 hour

Description: "Sustainability of RE Technical Training"
High quality technical training for Renewable Energies (RE) technicians is a crucial precondition for successful sector development. Incorrect installations are dangerous and can discredit a technology in a country. Though RE has increased dramatically, training of technicians within accredited training centres has not kept pace with the industry requirements. This webinar will present the main aspects of the publication of IEA PVPS Task 9 and ISES “Guideline to Introducing Quality Renewable Energy (RE) Technician Training Programs”:

  • Components of a Quality Training Framework
  • An approach how to introduce quality RE training and what to do if there is no country Quality Training Framework
  • Existing Quality training and technician’s certification/accreditation schemes
