Solar installation lasses are taught by a pool of experienced instructors who have years of hands-on solar electric experience, including Bill Brooks of Endecon Engineering, Douglas Livingston, veteran PV instructor, Jeff Oldham, Project Manager of the Real Goods Solar Living Center and 20 year PV veteran Douglas Bath

The leading solar installation training center in California is the Solar Living Institute, and there are additional courses available through Community Colleges, and nationally by associations such as the NABCEP.
