Installer, Commissioning and O&M Training

Nobody knows our innovative technology better than we do — and we are happy to share our knowledge with you.

PowerworX Academy

Our PowerworX training is led by a cross functional team that talks about fundamentals and finer points of design and installation of our unique solar tracker technology. At our PowerworX Academy, we don’t just talk about our innovative products and their latest iteration in theory, we are all about hands-on experience. Just a few steps from your classroom, you’ll find our outdoor facility where we are going to put you to work. Drop your pencil and grab our specialty tools so that you get a feel for how they handle. We’ll make sure to teach you all the tricks to put you in the position to do your best work out in the field. After all, the devil is in the details.

“Coming to NEXTracker and participating in a hands-on demonstration at their facility is terrific; they have a great venue where attendees can master field installation of their advanced trackers.  That’s what really sets PowerworX Academy apart,” says Brad Wilson, Project Manager at Moss Solar.

You are not only in for a great educational and personal experience; you’ll also get proper credit. The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) has approved our PowerworX Academy courses so that you can earn points towards your NABCEP degree, one of the most respected certifications in the solar industry.
