Practical and professional training
The Solar Entrepreneurship Training is a 10-month programme based on the development of practical skills and divided into two parts. The first part which is the technical course, deals with the technical aspects of the installation and maintenance of solar systems. This course lasts for 11 weeks.
The entrepreneurship course has been designed to equip learners with the basic skills for setting up and running a business in order to be competitive on the market. This second part makes the learner a technical sales representative in the solar field.
The programme benefits from technical and educational support from the Schneider Electric Foundation and financial support from the global leader in energy- Electricité de France (EDF), in the form of grants for young women.
