WHAT OUR CORPORATE CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

“North American Solar Academy came to Kingston Ontario to provide the 2-day course for thirteen employees at our organization. It would have been challenging to send this number of people to do the training out of town and it was much more economical to bring the training in-house. All the participants, including electricians and mechanics were pleased with the theory and they had a blast installing panels to a roof, a pole mount, a rack mount and finally connecting the solar modules to the combiners, inverters and the battery bank. Scott, the instructor was knowledgeable and was never stumped by any our technical questions. Now our organization has 13 employees that can talk the fundamentals of solar power generation as we endeavor to increase our renewable energy installations in the coming years. Thanks Scott!”

Mark S. – January 2017

“North American Solar Academy provided our Ontario team with a 2 day hands on course. Scott did an excellent job combining product specifications, working installations and knowledge of solar PV construction. Our team left with an excellent foundation in the construction of a typical roof top or ground mount installation for off grid and grid tied projects. We would recommend his course to anyone looking to construct a solar PV system on their house or business.”

Mike Jeffrey
General Manager Canada – Guillevin Greentech

“Moose Cree First Nation had the privilege of working with North American Solar Academy in fall of 2016. It was an excellent solar training curriculum and 10 of our community members enjoyed the detailed class room session and most of all; the hands on training of properly installing roof systems, pole mounted systems and ground mount systems. Scott Seidel is an excellent instructor and emphasized safety on many issues like proper electronic calculations, working with electricity AC/DC, working at heights, the right tools, the right work wear and labelling the components. I recommend this training package to Northern communities, training institutions and solar associations. We are looking to have Scott back for more sessions because we had tremendous interest from our community, his excellent instructor skills, hands on training and experiencing a functioning solar system which is rare in our community.”

Jay Monture
Economic Development Coordinator at Moose Cree First Nation

“We brought in North American Solar Academy to provide an introductory Solar PV Design and Installation seminar for our staff. Scott was knowledgeable, professional and responded well to our team’s interest in applications suited to our business. The seminar was delivered in an easy to understand format with good follow up materials. North American Solar Academy is a great resource for any company looking to educate their staff on solar power.”
