This course is one of eight courses offered under the award- winning Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series. This 5 day workshop on Solar Thermal technology focuses on domestic solar hot water systems, but will discuss the various applications of solar thermal technology. You will learn how to site a system based on solar fundamentals and how to size a system based on thermal load analysis. You will explore system components, types, and designs as well as best practices regarding installation, maintenance and troubleshooting. A hands-on installation of both a fully-operational drainback and a pressurized glycol system will cap the week.

An optional NABCEP Solar Heating (SH) Entry Level Exam is offered. You must meet additional experiential requirements to sit for the NABCEP Solar Heating Installer Certification Exam. This course counts toward the educational requirement (other requirements needed) on the journey to becoming a NABCEP Certified Solar Heating installer. Details Here.
