Sept. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Carbondale, Colorado – United States – September 6, 2011 – Labor Day has come and gone, but Solar Energy International is still accepting new students for a diverse selection of renewable energy education courses. Many of their courses can be completed in a few short hours and are geared specifically towards those who need an introduction to solar energy or wind power and those who just want to brush up on their technical skills or legal coding requirements. A company spokesperson stressed the importance of continuing education in any field in a statement released from the SEI main office this morning.  

“The technology that fuels renewable energy expansion is changing and developing rapidly,” said the spokesperson. “In the past decade alone we have seen tremendous growth in the number of solar powered facilities and wind turbines worldwide. What was once an interesting alternative to fossil fuels has now become an in-demand product that is being developed by all nations. The US and China are in an energy race that is being compared to the early space race of the 1960s between the US and the Soviet Union. With that kind of pressure to succeed, it’s essential that anyone in the field stay current on new developments.”

In addition to their standard solar energy installer and wind energy courses, Solar Energy International also offers practical business courses for those interested in starting up or expanding a renewable energy company. These courses cover everything from a basic introduction to Solar Energy (which is a free course) to business development, financing, sales, marketing, and public relations. The administration is encouraging all students to take these short, three hour courses to supplement their regular curriculum.

“Learning how to do something is only half the equation,” the SEI spokesperson stated. “How do you go about marketing the service that you’ve learned to provide? You can go to work for another company or you can start your own. If you do the latter, do you know the first thing about how to run a business, raise funds, market your product, or make sales? Do you know how to create a company brand or position yourself as a positive addition to your community? These are all critical to launching and maintaining a successful company. We offer courses to help you with each of them, intense, short, but comprehensive courses.”

Solar Energy International was founded in 1991 and has been offering introductory and continuing education in renewable energy for over twenty years. Their vision, as stated in their Mission Statement is “focused on helping create a more sustainable future for our planet and its inhabitants”. Through their work, they hope to influence people's thinking towards energy efficiency and the use of natural, sustainable methods of energy production and utilization.
