...Got SUN?
"GWCC" Goes Solar!.(again)..

Quote of the month:
“Efficiency is cheaper than fuel"-Amory Lovins

Gateway Community College is still accepting enrollments for the Spring 2014 semester for "non-credit" classes that offer a focus on sustainability and solar energy applications.

The topics and "hands-on" learning covered in the credit ENV 182:"Solar PV Systems I" course equals the required combination of the non-credit "Solar Fundamentals and Site Selection" and "PV entry Level" classes that are needed in order to be eligible to sit for a GWCC "NABCEP entry-level PV exam"

however,
PLEASE NOTE THAT STUDENTS WHO ARE ENROLLED IN THE COLLEGE SYSTEM ARE BEING BLOCKED FROM BEING ABLE TO ENROLL IN THESE CLASSES ON-LINE !!

You MUST use the paper form found here and MAIL it, FAX it or WALK-IT into registration.....

Please join us for some FUN WITH THE SUN Highlights!

WOW take a closer look at these

They are designed to be of general interest to both homeowner and trades persons alike !

Try to visit the college's new "GREAT" center and the Department of Continuing Education for "non-credit" offerings. Then contact the Dept. of Continuing Ed. and --- direct your phone calls to (203) 285-2300
or (203) 285-2082
however,
