The first week of the solar photovoltaic (PV) installer and design training started on 03 June and was concluded with a site visit at Jaha Solar factory. During the first week TÜV Rheinland trainer, Mr. Volker Hense who has been working in the PV industry for 27 years covered a comprehensive curriculum with detailed technical knowledge and practical examples from different case studies.

During the first week of the training 19 participants, mainly representatives of local solar companies, learned about: Production of PV systems from Cell to Module; PV System Quality, Audits and Warranty; Site and Building Evaluation; Solar Radiation / Shading; System Planning and Design; Construction and Installation Law, Technical Standards and Regulation; Lightning and Fire Protection; Evaluation of buildings and roof statics; Detection and evaluation of failures; Monitoring of PV systems; System Commissioning and Documentation; Operation and Maintenance; Preparing reports and Safety at Work, among others.

The training was also highly focused on international standards for PV production, installation, building construction, measurements and maintenance.

During the last day of the training the participants visited Jaha Solar, the first PV panel producer in the Western Balkans, and were guided by Jaha Solar representatives through the production process of a PV panel.

The second and third week of the training will continue from the 19th of August with practical hands on training on PV planning, installations and measurements. At the final day the trainees will undergo an exam testing their knowledge gained and will be certified as PV experts by TÜV Rheinland.

The training and certification program is organized and financed by USAID project EMPOWER Private Sector in partnership with Sida - Styrelsen för Internationellt Utvecklingssamarbete and  Enhancing Youth Employment- EYE Project, and is facilitated by KIMERK. Kosovo private sector companies are participating with 38% of the total cost of the training and certification program, which validates their demand for such trainings.
