"The course has given me valuable insight into the solar arena with first-hand knowledge, statistics and data relevant to the industry. The Professor gave plenty of time for us to ask questions about each topic." 



"I liked the practical examples that the Professor gave from implementing his own projects. This provided a better perspective and understanding on the importance of training at all levels"
