What you get from attending one of our full mixed company courses:

Our trainers have many years of experience in teaching PV*SOL and PV theory, as well as technical authoring in the renewable energy industry.

You may also be interested in our two supplementary courses, Shading and Solar Surveying and Key PV Concepts.

Key PV Concepts covers the foundational knowledge necessary to use PV*SOL, such as solar geometry; how inverters work; the area utilisation method for frame mounted systems and why shading matters.

Shading and Solar Surveying is a one-day practical course where you will get to grips with the MCS shading methodology and become confident in conducting other types of professional site surveys.


The training at the Solar Design Company was well-organised and very worthwhile, set in pleasant surroundings. Bryn had a deep understanding of the software, which together with his pleasant manner ensured a positive learning experience.

Rhys Morgan, YABenergy

The PV*SOL training was excellent; the course was well-structured and the presenter was obviously an expert in the tools used. I would recommend this training to anyone using or thinking of using PV*SOL.

Peter Gurr, Wessex Renewable Energy

The Solar Design Company gave us a very comprehensive one day's training which cleared up all the areas of PV*SOL we needed clarifying. We are now proficient users of the software and are using it on a daily basis. Please pass our thanks to the trainer who was excellent.
