WHAT OUR CORPORATE CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

“Great Solar Design and Installation Workshop!

This was the general impression of 14 participants in the Green Economy Program at Ryerson who attended the two days workshop. Participants liked the high level of knowledge of the instructor, the content on design and most of all; the hands-on experience on installation of the solar system.”

Jose Garcia – Green Economy Program Manager – March 4, 2018

“I have been working with Scott from North American Solar Academy for about 3 months now and I could not be more pleased with my experience. He is quick to reply to any communications, he is patient and thoughtful in his responses and he is a true collaborator who works well with any external stakeholders. Scott goes above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy and I would highly recommend him.”

Dana Stott – Program Coordinator – December 2017

“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.”

Sean Crockett, MBA, ICD.D
Vice President, TouchPoint Solutions

“I would like to thank you for coming down here to Hamilton to do solar training with us.
You included enough information to cover all the basics for those that may not have had any experience with solar power but also included enough information for those with some experience to challenge us and to help give us the information that we were looking for.
Your presentation was clear and followed logical steps so that we should be able to make the calculations that we need to do our work in developing countries.
I know that it is a lot of work to carry around all of your equipment as well as the roof and all the solar panels but the hands-on is a great addition for those of us who are visual learners.
Thanks for your pleasant demeanor and for answering all of our questions.”

I didn't take the course but Scott helped me through the whole set up. The install went according to the plans and it started working right away. A great system with excellent customer service. Thanks Scott. Living off grid in Northern Ontario. Mark

What Scott provides with this course is practical, invaluable information that will give you not only insight into what it takes to install a PV Solar system, it will show you that it is possible to do it yourself. Scott shares his knowledge with care, patience and humour. Always willing to take questions, and making himself available for future consultation if necessary. If you're ready to learn about PV systems, this is the first place to start. Simon Fon

Having registered for the course in The North American Solar Academy enabled me to enhance my technical skills and gain more knowledge in the PV System Design including grid tied and stand alone applications. Scott is an excellent instructor to teach the materials during the 2 days hands-on workshops, very skilled to explain the calculation for the PV Design as well. In addition to learning about the solar installation's process and the used components, the students take part in the roof, pole and ground mounted solar installation under the supervision of Scott after he demonstrates and explains how to perform it. One of my best choices to take a course in solar energy design and installation. Highly recommanded. Souad L.
