Our Roofers Solar PV course will give you the skills and the knowledge to identify and fit solar panels on commercial or domestic roofs. You will get hands on training on how to fit solar PV equipment using roof ladders and harnesses.
Not every electrician fancies climbing onto a roof to install solar panels. As such this leaves a gap in the market for roofers who are skilled in fitting solar PV equipment at height and then allowing an electrician to come in do all the final wiring up. The demand for skills in this area is growing and the ability to install solar panels can open up more financial opportunities for those experienced in working at height.
