This accredited course will provide basic design and installation instruction
for engineers and architects for PV systems including National Electric Code,
International Fire Code, and International Building Code considerations (or similar
code systems). Participants will receive in-depth and hands-on training on the
equipment commonly found in PV systems as well as on utilizing local electrical
and building codes in the design and installation of PV systems. This course is
intended to provide information fundamental to the design and installation of code
compliant PV systems, but should not be considered a course that will provide all
the information that one may require in this field.
