The Solar Program recently received accreditation through the Interstate Renewable Energy Council.  This certifies that SLCC maintains conformance to the highest quality and standards of instruction and provides the tools needed in today's competitive and ever-changing landscape.  Our Solar Training Yard offers students multiple opportunities for full installation practice of various installation types.  This includes experiencing various roofing structures, pole mounted, grid-tied and off-grid opportunities.  Close interaction with faculty ensures each student has ultimate learning opportunity.
