    Please Note: - A large percentage of the course timetable is allocated to building, setting-up, testing and trouble-shooting faults using core elements of Alternative Energy Systems. At the end of the course an interested and hardworking participant will have a foundation knowledge of what practical alternative energy is all about. Each module of the training program is backed-up by practical exercises, demonstrations and course materials. These training methods give the participant a greater grasp of the practical aspects aspects of the industry and provides them with the “Hands- On” experience and confidence which are so essential for success.
