This course is one of four in a solar systems and energy management program developed by the Bergen County Vocational-Technical Schools to help tradespeople (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning mechanics; plumbers; and electricians) to develop an awareness of alternate energy sources and to gain skills in the areas of solar installations and energy evaluation and management. The format of the course is a combination of lectures, visual presentations, and shop sessions.

The units cover the following topics: introduction and orientation, system start-up, mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, solar system troubleshooting, and troubleshooting solar back-up systems. The competencies to be acquired by students are listed at the end of the syllabus. (KC)
