The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) will serve as the national administrator for the Solar Instructor Training Network (SITN) to help ensure that the national solar training infrastructure can meet the employment needs of a rapidly growing domestic solar industry. IREC will receive up to $4.5 million of funding over five years to administer the program. Through the work of the Training Network, the DOE anticipates that over 1400 instructors will be trained across the nation, creating the capacity to train thousands of workers for the solar installation industry.

The IREC will serve as the national point of contact for the training network, conducting outreach to disseminate its products and best practices recommendations. It will manage the network’s collaboration, coordinate its joint activities, and work with a broad set of stakeholders to prioritize and address issues related to solar training.
