APPLICATION FOR SOLAR WATER HEATING AND SOLAR PV TRAINING COURSES
The Solar Water Heating (SWH) and Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Systems Regulations gazetted by the Energy Regulatory
Commission (ERC) in 2012 require that technicians and contractors designing and installing solar PV and solar water
heating systems be licensed by ERC. To be licensed, technicians and contractors should have undertaken the relevant
training. Additionally, vendors and manufacturers need to employ licensed technicians in order to be licensed themselves.
The Ministry of Environment and Forestry with support from the USAID/UNDP funded Low Emission and Climate
Resilient Development (LECRD) Project supported capacity development of Technical Vocational Education and Training
Institutions (TVETs) to offer training on design, installation, repair and maintenance of solar photovoltaic and solar water
heating systems. These efforts were done in collaboration with the Institute of Energy and Environmental Technology
(IEET), Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT). Ten (10) TVETs were supported in SPV and SWH
training of trainers (ToT) and provision of training equipment. The Project also facilitated the development of a National
Solar Water Heating Training Manual.
