Who is the trainer?

Do you offer training online?

Not yet! PVsyst is a complex software and the needs of each trainee differ based on their organizational needs. Working in-person and in small groups has proved most successful thus far. That said, we are looking for ways to offer at least part of the training online to make our methods available to more folks in the solar community. Stay tuned!

Do you offer public trainings?

We are not offering any public trainings in 2019, however Stephen is available for on-site trainings of four (4) to ten (10) students for companies based in the U.S.
