Hands-on instruction for solar workers

Nextracker is strongly committed to training the clean energy workforce of today. More than 1,000 solar workers have learned new skills at our PowerworX Academy locations in the U.S., India, Brazil, the Middle East, North Africa, and Australia.

Seasoned Instructors
Our seasoned instructors provide cross-functional, hands-on instruction to solar workers on the fundamentals and finer points of the design, installation, commissioning, software, and operations and maintenance of our advanced PV tracker systems.
Best-in-class Training Program
PowerworX training is more than an academic approach. Much of the training takes place at our outdoor facilities, where participants are put to work so they can see our systems up close and personal.
Learn and Train Others
Our goal is to put attendees in a position to do their best work in the field and help train their coworkers.
