Solar PV– First Male Batch. (65 Trainees, July 2018)
65 youth males from the city of Mafraq and surrounding areas in northern Jordan, have completed the seven-month training program in installation and maintenance of the photovoltaic solar systems at Jordanian German center of excellence for solar energy, the students equipped the required knowledge to be a promising future for the field of solar technicians.
They are currently ready to join the Jordanian labor market as qualified and skilled technicians in the field of photovoltaic solar systems, after receiving the training program within the training workshop at the Center of Excellence, and passing all the practical and theoretical examinations in addition to the occupational tests that certified by Center of Accreditation and Quality Control CAQA, to be able to obtain the occupational license of professional practice as a skilled technicians in the photovoltaic solar systems.

In addition to obtaining a certificate of participation certified by the NET Company in the field of solar heating systems, after completing a short-term training course within the training workshop at the Center of Excellence, through a practical training program accredited and developed to emulate the latest solar heating systems that may add more values on the experience of trainees in their careers. During this course, students were trained on multiple subjects related to heating systems both from a theoretical and practical perspective. The training was divided into three parts; the first part was about sanitary installations were the trainer needed six intensive credit hours to provide the students with the needed knowledge in that field. The second part of this training was 10 credit hours dedicated to teaching students about non-solar heating systems (electrical, gas systems) where they learned about the installation, diagnosis of problems, and maintenance of these systems.
The rest of the credit hours of this training focused on the field of solar heating systems, the students were introduced to each component and its principle of work individually, then about all the system components combined.
