The training will be to impart training on development, assembly, repair and maintenance of various solar products such as

  • Home Lighting System
  • Solar Power Bank
  • Solar Lamps

Total duration of training will be 2 months (416 hours) including a 15 days on field internship which should majorly focus on installation of solar products like street lights and solar home lighting systems.

The participants will also be given training on marketing and entrepreneurship skills so that they will become the campaigners of solar energy. The training program is strictly residential with a clear daily timetable

Training will majorly focus on repair and maintenance of solar products like solar mobile charger, solar home lighting system, solar street lights etc.

Selection of Participants
Selection of participants depends upon the institute, however there are some selection criteria which are needed to be followed:-

Essential Qualification: Candidate should be 10+2 pass and should be not less than 18 years.

Preferable: It is also preferred that trainee should have certificate of ITI, diploma or degree in engineering branches Electrical/Mechanical/Electronics, experience in certified electrician is also preferred.
