Students learn about solar energy construction during spring 2022 training hosted in Dillingham.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Bristol Bay Campus recently received  support from the Alaska Technical Vocational Education Program for a solar energy installation instructor training program.
This “train the trainer” initiative will teach participants how to install solar electric power systems and how to teach the concepts to help certify others with Solar Energy International. The goal of this training is to develop the first group of Alaska-trained solar electric installation instructors in the state.

The solar energy training will take place in Spring 2023 and is for groups and individuals interested in beginning their professional careers in solar energy in the state of Alaska.
