Salt Lake Community College’s Green Academy has completed Utah’s only Solar Photovoltaic (PV) training yard.
“The completion of the photovoltaic training yard is an exciting addition to sustainable green energy practice and workforce development in Utah. It’s been great to be a part of this project—it demonstrates the college’s commitment to help prepare Utah’s workforce for renewable energy technologies and conservation,” said SLCC Dean of the School of Professional and Economic Development Karen Gunn. “The new training yard is the first of its kind in the state and will facilitate Utah’s capacity to meet industry demands for highly skilled green energy technicians.”
The PV training yard is a resource for industry professionals and prospective technicians looking to accelerate their knowledge and skills through hands-on training and curriculum provided by North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP)-certified instructors.
