Enphase University - Learn Online Using our New Platform for Solar Installers

Sep 16, 2020

The solar energy sector is constantly evolving, and innovative technologies are being deployed into the market all the time. Enphase strives to be at the forefront of these changes and keep the folks on the front lines up to date. As a result, the Enphase learning management system is specifically designed to educate our solar installers to provide safe and reliable service to our mutual customers – the homeowners and commercial system owners.

To provide a flexible, accessible, and industry-leading learning solution for our partners, we launched Enphase University--our new online classes to help solar installers sell, design, and install Enphase solutions. The industry leading hands-on and webinar training is now augmented with online learning paths that can be used to achieve various Enphase certifications.

These courses are highly recommended for contractors who have had some general installation experience with Enphase products. Prior industry knowledge is best, as solar technology use cases, vocabulary and examples will be used during the coursework and skill assessments.

The Enphase University learning management system can be accessed for free on a simple-to-use portal. In a COVID-19 world, this allows installers to gain professional development skills from the comfort of their homes and without spending a single cent. By completing specific targeted learning paths, contractors can also earn NABCEP Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that can contribute towards a full NABCEP certification.

Achieving an Enphase University certification is also a mark of excellence and credibility. The certification positions installers to confidently answer questions from customers about Enphase products and become educated regarding emerging technologies such as solar battery storage. Certified installers will be invited to join an elite network and be the first choice for homeowners and businesses installing Enphase technologies.
