The Madison College Photovoltaics Certificate is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge necessary for a career in renewable energy technology. Students acquire hands-on skills in troubleshooting, maintenance, installation, operation, and repair and replacement of related equipment. The certificate requires a minimum of 15 credits of coursework.
Certificate credits may be combined with additional coursework to enhance traditional diploma, degree, and transfer programs at Madison College. The credits also may be combined with additional training, job experience and/or professional examinations to qualify for certification by national renewable energy institutions.
Incumbent trade workers and technical professionals are also encouraged to investigate how a Photovoltaics Certificate may relate to their current work or business practices. Some classes are delivered in online, and/or intensive short-course formats, and some classes may be offered during evenings, weekends, winter break, spring break, and/or summer sessions
