Course will be the first of the Federal Network. Launch event takes place on March 03, at the Campus Boituva.
The IFSP will launch, on March 03rd, in the auditorium of the Campus Boituva, the launch of the Technical Specialization in Photovoltaic Solar Energy, a pioneer course in the Federal Network of Professional, Scientific and Technological Education. The event will start at 14 pm and will feature a round table on security in photovoltaic installations.
Due to the limited number of seats in the auditorium, people interested in participating in the launch must register via the electronic form that can be accessed here. On link it is also possible to check the complete program of the event.
The Specialization in Photovoltaic Solar Energy will have a total workload of 240 hours. Classes will take place in person, at the Campus Boituva, and will be taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the morning. For the first class, 30 places will be offered. Registration starts on March 03 and classes are scheduled to start on the 17th of the same month.
The course was developed together with the Working Group for Professional Training in Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency of IFSP, Energif, within a cooperation agreement with the German company CHALK, which provided training for teachers at the Campus Boituva in the field of Photovoltaic Systems. Professor Mário Pin, coordinator of the specialization, said that it was created to meet a growing market demand. "With the exponential growth of installations of photovoltaic systems in recent years, companies in the sector face difficulties in hiring specialized labor, both for the design and execution of these installations". According to him, the objective is to offer specific knowledge to professionals who already have a technician certificate in related areas and who intend to work on projects, operation and maintenance and installation of photovoltaic systems.
Professor Felipe Almeida, general director of Câmpus Boituva, recalled that the world of work needs more and more highly trained professionals and to train Technical Specialists in Photovoltaic Solar Energy is to meet this demand, through professional training that will have qualified teachers and will offer students access to quality, free education. “Câmpus Boituva is the first of the Federal Network to offer this course and has laboratory infrastructure and high-level teaching equipment, which are available to students for learning with the skills that the photovoltaic sector needs”. According to him, the support of the rectory, of Setec, of the company GIZ and of CPFL were fundamental in the structuring of the laboratories and implementation of the course.
