During SolPowerPeople’s #SolarMOOC
Solar Experts Unite to Bring Free Solar Training to the World Through MOOC Connectivism
SolPowerPeople Inc. is proud to announce Azimuth Solar Training’s Jeff Gilbert as guest lecturer for the Massive Open Online Course #SolarMOOC live at 6pm CST on Monday April 23, 2012. Jeff will cover NABCEP PV Installer TM job task analysis- “Verifying System Design” during his live webinar. With over 18 years of experience including renewable energy design, installation, troubleshooting and business development, Jeff Gilbert is considered a master of the PV industry and renewable energy technology. In 2000, Jeff cofounded Chesapeake Solar, which quickly became a leading mid-Atlantic renewable energy company. In 2008, Chesapeake Solar was listed in Inc. Magazine as one of the 500 fastest growing small companies. Aware of its position as a hot commodity, groSolar acquired the reins of Chesapeake Solar, leaving Jeff with an open opportunity to dive into training to share his experience and expertise with others who also envision a world where all energy production is sustainable. With a history of working with organizations such as the Department of Energy (DOE), the National Renewable Energy Labs (NREL) , and the current Chesapeake chapter of the Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), Jeff is thoroughly ingrained in the solar sector and has woven himself into the fibers of the system to become an invaluable resource to the solar community. Jeff currently provides technical and business training for the solar community and is working to create an on demand video based learning program for solar certification preparation and for continuing education. His training facility in Columbia, MD will soon be a NABCEP approved Alternate Installation Experience Pathway provider.
