FAIRFIELD — Kennebec Valley Community College has taken solar training on the road this summer, most recently traveling to Cheney Technical High School in Manchester, Conn., in early July to teach the second in a series of three summer solar Train the Trainer courses.

The course is part of a full curriculum KVCC teaches as Northeast training provider for the Solar Instructor Training Network, a program of the U.S. Department of Energy. KVCC teaches instructors throughout the Northeast region about solar photovoltaic technology and how to incorporate it into their programs.

The course at Cheney Technical High School, Solar PV Design and Installation, is the hands-on follow-up to an online course students took over the spring. The students attending the courses are electrical, engineering and building trades instructors from colleges, high schools and unions throughout the Northeast. In June, KVCC taught a session of Solar PV Design and Installation at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut and at the end of July, the last session will be at Sullivan County Community College in Loch Sheldrake, N.Y.
