    NO doubt I've inspected some jobs installed by their graduates...
    At my age, I'm accustomed to restaurants asking me to pay in advance, but now my bank has started sending me their calendar one month at a time.

      Notice the titles of the courses end in "- Theory." No hands-on, just a bunch of boring lectures by the no-doubt qualified instructor.

        I need theory, but I only have time for the first one and they won’t take four party checks.

          It always has surprised me how in the solar industry, so much emphasis is put on these solar courses and little on being an electrician. Sure, there are some unique things about solar that a course is good for, but to think you can take a week or two course, and then basically be "certified" is laughable. For example the NABCEP certification, IIRC you need two week long courses, into PV and Advanced PV, and experience with three systems and passing a test and then you are a "cream of the crop" PV installer.....

            But passing the test is the rub; the training and experience only qualify you to sit for the exam. It wasn't an easy exam for me, and I'm an electrical engineer. You don't pass that test without understanding electricity to at least some extent and being able to effectively use a codebook.

              Which is the main b*tch of our local poco's who are having solar fields tied into their grid w/out licensed installers OR inspections here

                  May be a legitimate course, definitely not a course that will result in being licensed when completed.

                  Could even have some possibility for CEU credits in some areas.

                  Just because one is good at electrical doesn't mean they are good at other aspects of design and install of PV equipment, and vice versa. There are people out there that are good in both areas though.
                  I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

                    i'm a pretty fair electrician however, and now
                    that i'm gas certified..... well, the sky is the limit.

                      Eat at a better class of restaurant and you'll lose that gas certification...

                          CA has licenses for everything though. I bet one needs a license to pick their nose even

                            Only to pick someone else's nose. You can pick your own nose without a license or permit.

                              Well, the class is not too far from me and I’m free that weekend so I registered.

                              We’ll see if it’s worth the investment.
