As the application of alternative energy becomes more popular, those with training in solar technology can look forward to a bright and promising career in this growing job market. Careers related to solar power are springing up around the world. The highest demand is in warmer climates, such as the southern and western parts of the United States, which received direct sunlight year round.

This certificate program offers an opportunity to get into the ground floor of this growing industry. Of course, you may also build on this certificate program and earn an Associate of Applied Science in Alternative Energy Technology with a major in Solar Technology.

After learning a wide range of electrical, mechanical and computer skills through this one-year program, you will be prepared for a range of entry-level jobs that may include installing solar panels, servicing and maintaining existing panels, designing and testing solar products, or research and development of new solar technologies.

The growth of careers in the solar sector also presents a unique opportunity for professionals who are prepared to transition from careers in more mature or declining areas of energy technology. For example, individuals who currently work as electricians or for electric companies may be interested in adding solar power training to their resume in order to expand their job opportunities.
