Easy Warm Pty Ltd and SolarQuip run a three day solar pv training course in Auckland.
For more information on training courses please contact: Barbara Elliston, New Zealand & Pacific Solar Council, Tel. 021 681 688 (NZ).
The course provides the basics of designing and installing a grid-tie solar PV system. See the Course Outline.
