Guideline to Introducing Quality Renewable Energy Technician Training Programs

13. July 2017
This document is a joint publication of the IEA PVPS (International Energy Agency’s Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme) Task 9 and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). 
The guide provides an overview of:
  •  Quality Training Frameworks;
  •  The processes involved in developing competency based Quality-Training programs; and
  •  The capacity building requirements for the technical and vocational education sector
The overall objective of the guide is to enable stakeholders to identify the best way to introduce renewable energy courses into an existing quality training framework or, if one does not exist, to establish a process whereby the training being provided is following quality procedures. The guide concludes with recommendation that the Global Renewable Energy Industry should consider the introduction of an international framework that would provide a mechanism for renewable energy training programs to be accredited by a third party. View the guide here.
