    Amazing and comprehensive

    A detailed course conducted by an amazing tutor! As an engineer, I was glad to learn from another engineer who spends extra time to take us through each essential component in a detailed manner and provides us with the flexibility of learning it anywhere and anytime through any smart device.

    Practical course

    Most courses that I have undertaken involve a lot of theoretical aspects with limited exercises on practical stuff. However, this course adopts a practical approach with relevant theory, because the tutor demonstrates how to design and install a solar energy system at any preferred location through a step-by-step approach and by highlighting real-life examples.
