This 6-week online class is the REPV online equivalent without the hands-on installation day. This is a 40 hour photovoltaic workshop housed under the award-winning Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series. This course gives participants the flexibility to take courses online – either through the 2 weekly scheduled live sessions or the 2 weekly recorded lectures. Live online classes will take place twice a week, 2.5 hours each session. These live lectures take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00AM-12:30PM. Those who cannot attend the live lectures can watch the recorded versions. Online REPV is dedicated to the technical aspect of photovoltaics, including solar fundamentals and proper system siting, electrical load analysis and system sizing, system types, components , applications, wiring and best practices with respect to installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. This course covers all topics included in the NABCEP job task analysis. Supplemental readings and assignment submittals are required in addition to the lectures. Multiple choice quizzes with a total of 150 questions covering lecture content and supplementary reading content are an additional requirement for successful course completion.
