The UAF Bristol Bay Campus Sustainable Energy program is sponsoring a Solar Professionals Installation Training May 6 to 13in Dillingham.

Students will spend 8 straight days learning the fundamental, practical science behind solar electric systems and installation methods through both coursework and hands-on experience. Following the initial class, students will apply their knowledge through direct installation of a new, grid-tied, solar electric array on the Bristol Bay Campus.

These credits will count toward the Sustainable Energy Occupational Endorsement Certificate.
