From Maine to Hawaii, the RTPs are training instructors at community colleges, technical high schools, trade associations, and solar organizations to build solar workforce capacity across the U.S.

Established by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Solar Instructor Training Network (SITN) is filling a critical need for accessible, high quality, market-valued training in solar system design, installation, sales and inspection through train-the-trainer programs. The Network is composed of nine Regional Training Providers (RTPs), well-established solar training institutions with expert trainers and first-class training facilities. IREC is the National Administrator for the SITN.
