Watch the latest Solar Training Program Informational Webinar to see if it’s right for you!

Walnut Way is partnering with The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) to offer an introductory solar installation training program to eligible applicants. The program will provide solar credential pathways and career opportunities from industry experts.

There are many benefits to joining the training program:

  • Free Solar Technical Training from Industry Experts
  • Free Opportunity to earn your NABCEP PV Associate Credential and become a solar professional
  • Paid Internship Opportunity – upon training completion
  • Professional Development networking

Walnut Way works to create career opportunities in environmental fields, through urban agriculture and landscaping. We are expanding our efforts in an emerging field, the solar industry by creating a pipeline to education and career pathways for communities of color.

Historically, the solar industry is unrepresented for communities of color. Our aim is to act as a bridge between our community and the clean energy industry by partnering with MREA. MREA will provide training and internship opportunities at Walnut Way, virtually and in-person.

Limited scholarships will be available to remove any additional hardships to access this opportunity.
