What does the Infinite Solar Certificate of Completion mean? What can I do with it?

Infinite Solar Certificate of Completion is a critical first step for anyone seeking to build a solar installation business. Certificate of Completion serves to:
  • Identify installers as professionals, instilling consumer confidence
  • Enable installers to distinguish their knowledge, skills and safety preparedness
  • Validate resources spent on training.
An Infinite Solar Certificate of Completion also connects you to our Alumni Network program. You’ll receive product discounts, the ability to use our brand in your marketing, access to our marketing and sales materials, as well as support from our dealer representatives and technicians. You can also operate your solar installation business; however, some locations require all solar thermal and Solar PV installers to have additional certifications, such as NABCEP certification, or similar. It is your responsibility to understand what certifications are required in your local market and attain them. For your convenience we created a chart where you can find your state’s requirements. Are there any pre-requisites for the Solar PV classes? While there are no specific prerequisites for the course, a good working knowledge of algebra and trigonometry are helpful in the design portion of the course. A basic understanding of electricity is also recommended.
