*Course Overview*

The PV Design and Design & Installation Courses are for anyone 
interested in learning more about solar electricity, siting, sizing and 
safely installing a PV system. These courses are relevant and suitable 
for electricians, as well as homeowners or others without professional 
electrical backgrounds and training. 

Topics will cover "photovoltaic" (solar electric) components, designing 
and sizing a solar electric system, siting, and configuration of 
stand-alone (off-grid) and grid-tied (utility-connected) systems, safety 
and energy efficiency.  Tuition includes instruction, all course 
materials (including a copy of Solar Energy International's 
"Photovoltaics Design and Installation Manual"), lunches and snacks. 

This course will be instructed by Randy Sadewic, a graduate of San Juan 
College. Randy co-owns Positive Energy, Inc., a company that designs and 
installs PV systems. Randy is certified by the North American Board of 
Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).  Students will also have the 
opportunity to hear from local PV business owners, installers and other 
PV experts during this course, with possible evening slide shows and 
talks from members of the New Mexico Solar Energy Association (NMSEA), 
determined by the group's interest.

Class begins with three days in the classroom, hands-on labs, and 
possible visiting instructors. Participants who register for the full 
5-day class will continue on to install a photovoltaic system the final 
two days of class.  Students must attend all 5 days of this class to 
receive a Certificate of Completion. 

Electricians who complete this class are eligible for continuing 
education credit through CID, the State of New Mexico's Construction 
Industries Division, and may seek to expand business by adding solar to 
their service line. 


Class will be held in Alamogordo, NM 
(208 miles from Albuquerque, 68 from Las Cruces, 90 from El Paso 
airport). The classroom portion will be held on NMSU-A Campus 
<http://nmsua.edu/map/#alamogordoMap>, location to be determined. 


Payment must be received before the class. Checks, Visa, Mastercard and 
cash are accepted. When registering, please give your name, company, 
mailing address, phone, e-mail, and dietary or other special needs. For 
PV classes: If you are an electrician, please include your Journeyman's 
License number, for reference.
