I noticed that we dont have a good base here for jobs, or training, how can this program work here for those who want training or employment here on the island of St. Croix. I myself have not touched a solar panel in four years now, I would like more training and some hands on experience, Thank you

If you want you can come to Oregon and I can do some training on a live lab :)

COVID-19 has certainly made hands-on training more difficult the past year. Now that vaccines are becoming available, I hope that many solar training providers will be able to ramp up once again (Eric might touch on this also).

Eric that is a great point, many veterans will want to use the GI Bill and would probably not consider the program if they are unable to use benefits.

How can we drive veterans to our college once becoming a certified training agent
Eric Filante - NABCEP
01:12:53
Hi Abe, I would strongly encourage you to follow Megan's advice and coordinating with the Veterans Resource Center on your campus, also searching for Veterans Organizations in your area could make a difference for older veterans who may not be familiar with how solar has evolved over the last decade
