The wildly popular SITN Solar Career Map – an online interactive tool that explores the many job opportunities available in the solar industry, is getting an upgrade. Over the two years since its launch, a wide variety of stakeholders in and outside of the RTPs have reported on the map’s usefulness, and the National Administrator’s Expert Advisory Team identified the update and improvement of the solar career lattice as a top priority.
As leader of the original solar career pathways working group, I now have the pleasure to chair the national working group which includes delegates from each Regional Training Partner. The working group is drawing on the collective expertise of SITN members to build a new and improved online career map. The group has prioritized a long wish list for a more comprehensive and user-friendly tool. Improvements will kick off this fall with updated data for each of the map’s 36 occupations, including at least one video from each of the Regional Training Providers. Look for more info at Solar Power International (SPI) in October!
