Canada's Premier Solar Training School Launches Free Tuition Promotion

Ontario Solar Academy Announces Holiday Contest Offering 5-Day Solar Energy Training Course, Valued at $2,995, for Free

TORONTO--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) -  ISPQ-accredited Ontario Solar Academy (OSA) recently announced a holiday contest in which one lucky individual will be able to attend OSA's 5-Day Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Design & Installation Course absolutely free. Prospective students need only send in a 500-word essay explaining why they should receive the training. The two runners-up will each receive a 50% discount.

Normally priced at $2,995, OSA's intensive solar training course equips students with the regulatory and technical expertise needed to safely install PV technology within Ontario's rapidly expanding green economy.

OSA Director, Jacob Travis, comments, "Times are difficult right now with the recession and holidays. We receive daily requests from enthusiastic candidates who, because of tight finances, cannot join our course." He adds, "Our Early Bird Discount and Price Match Offer have helped many students, but we designed this promotion for those needing additional assistance in securing solar career training."

Like all OSA students, the contest winner will receive 5 days of intensive solar PV installation and design training from a NABCEP-certified instructor. And like all OSA graduates, the winner will also receive automatic membership in Ontario Solar Network -- a fast-growing non-profit association dedicated to advancing business development for its members in Ontario's solar PV market.

Billed as a "Free Opportunity to Learn a Green Career," the promotion applies to the Academy's next 5-day training, scheduled from January 31 to February 4 in the GTA. Interested candidates should call 416-900-7191 or email contest@solaracademy.ca for application info. The application deadline is January 7, 2011.

Those wishing to register for Ontario Solar Academy's standard 5-day PV courses should visit www.solaracademy.ca for more details. Upcoming dates include Jan 31-Feb 4, Feb 21-Feb 25, and Feb 28-Mar 4. Those who register 3 weeks in advance automatically receive a $350 discount.
