Frostburg State University is offering an education program on design, installation and maintenance of residential wind and solar (PV) electric generation systems. The program includes an online component (March 31 through May 23) as well as hands-on training (May 29 through June 1) to prepare the attendees for the certification test administered by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), Inc. The hands-on part of the program will be held in FSU’s Compton Science Center.
Participants will learn the basics of PV/wind systems, resource assessment, setup configuration and regulations related to PV and wind generation system installations. Relevant sections of the National Electric Code will also be covered. The FSU engineering labs and WISE system located on campus will be available for practical experiments and demonstrations.
Separate workshops will be offered for PV and windmill installation. The registration fee is $500 for either one of the workshops or $750 for both workshops. FSU will accept applications through March 15. Space is limited and enrollment is on a first come, first served basis.
