though not only solar,but the course is about : rural electrification and energy entrepreneurhsip.

Thank you, Saurabh.

Just to add to this, we at LUTW offer training with a focus on low-voltage off-grid systems.




Few courses are offered by SRTRI to help rural students learn about Solar and other renewable energy technologies. These are aimed at development of skills needed for livelihood generation.

Solar Energy International (SEI) offers a range of training courses in PV and other forms of renewable energy, including classroom and online courses, hands-on installation, and custom trainings. Some courses focus specifically on renewable energy in the developing world. Several courses are available in Spanish. See http://www.solarenergy.org/international-rural-development and http://solarenergytraining.org

We are not really a training organization, but Smart Energy Services offers training in installing basic SHS (20Wp - 1000Wp) in Burkina Faso. Target group = electricians who wire buildings and who get demand for solar installations.

At the moment we are also training a hundred of pico-pv distributors in eastern and northern Burkina Faso as part of the SNV Pico PV 4 Africa program.
