Advance Certificate in PV Technician / Engineering

Institute of solar Technology a pioneer in PV solar technology training an academic partner of University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, we have created 1000+ new solar entrepreneur since 2014. We are conducting online interactive + practical training sessions on PV TECHNOLOGY & BUSINESS MANAGEMENT for start-ups, entrepreneur, managers, project developers, implementing agencies and EPC companies. Course focus is on solar power projects development and quality management.

The trainees will have the opportunity to interact with highly experienced trainers on site assessment and planning, feasibility study and detailed project report preparation, design and installation best practices, PV system performance modelling and energy yield assessment, documentation as per IEC standard, inspection procedure and quality assurance, O&M planning, tender document preparation and contract management. Course covers both rooftop and ground mounted MW scale PV power projects.


Live Interactive Classes::

IST Live Interactive Class, where students and teachers meet together at schedule class time with whiteboard, voice and live video, Lectures and Question answer occur at the same hour.

Our expert faculty members take session on each paper that is delivered through live sessions. These sessions are joined by students from India and Abroad. Trainers will discuss in each class session about Key concepts, whiteboard calculation, design, costing, documentation, case studies and real life examples. Students also get chance to clarify their doubts / academic clarifications. If by any chance you miss these live classes, don't worry, each class recorded sessions are uploaded in the IST E-Library/LMS.

Hands-on Practical

We know that only theoretical knowledge by online or virtual classes are not sufficient to get full expertise. An individual needs a practical exposure to flourish in a Job or business market. So we offer practical session at IST Power plant after completion of live interactive online classroom session .In this approach a trainees can fulfill his/her knowledge in a very effective way and time.

We offer project-based blended learning experiences that promote academic and career success for Technical Education.

Traditional Learning vs. IST Skill Training

Education is all about learning the theory. Traditionally, an education may reinforce knowledge in which that you already have a foundation.
And that's where IST Skill training differs; IST training gives you the skills to do something rather than just know about something. Training can be specific to your need, your work experience or your skills-gap.
