Firstgreen & MNIT Jaipur Announce NISE Certified training program on Solar Power Project Development

Firstgreen in association with MNIT Jaipur announces one week certificate Program on Solar power project Development 5TH Oct, 2015 to 10TH Oct, 2015 at MNIT Jaipur. This Program is ideal for graduate engineers and working professionals. At the end of the one week training program,  the participant will be able to have a complete understanding on the solar PV system sizing, Installation of ground mounted as well as rooftop solar PV systems, identify the Operation & Maintenance issues through fault finding analysis and be able to Troubleshoot the problem. The participant will also be able understand the project management principles and entrepreneurship skills.

The targeted participants in this training program include the Junior and Middle Level Managers/Executives of Solar Equipment Manufacturers, Developers, EPC Contractors, Regulators, Consultants, Academic institutions, Central/State Sector Solar Organizations etc. Nominations shall be preferred in respect of candidates sponsored by their employer organization, however individuals can also apply.


There are limited seats available in this course.  Early nominations are suggested. This is the first training programme of its kind being organized in the country.


We look forward to nominations from your organization for this Program. For any further details, please contact; 0124-6450224
