Faultless Solar (32 hour course)
This course combines two of WECA’s popular 16-hour courses, “Faultless” and “Solar Power for Electricians,” into one convenient 32-hour package. Learn about how to coordinate information in specific NEC articles, so you can properly select and install the correct electrical circuit components and conductors needed for different load and circuit configurations. Then, build on that knowledge as you learn about the fundamental concepts required for safe, code-compliant installation of residential and commercial-scale Solar Photovoltaic systems.
