The College Of Renewable Energy Offers Solar Energy Program

Sustainable Career Paths

The Solar Energy Technician Program is eligible for Second Career candidates in Ontario.

As Canadian college and university students gravitate towards green and sustainable career paths, The College Of Renewable Energy (C.O.R.E) offers them a chance to get proper certification.

C.O.R.E ‘s campus is in Newcastle, Ontario and is a registered Private College by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Their full-time Solar Energy Technician certification program covers all areas of Applied Solar Energy, for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

“Our residential school accommodates out-of-town students with fully furnished facilities, including food and laundry. The Solar Energy Technician’s 520 hour Course runs Monday to Friday and its modular format allows for intakes every four to six weeks,” said Philip Coulter, P. Eng., President & CEO of Kanatex Corporation Ltd and Founder of C.O.R.E.

“We maintain a low student to teacher ratio of 5-6 students per class, under full-time teaching supervision, including field work, by highly qualified Solar Energy Instructors.”

The Solar Energy Technician Program is also eligible for “Second Career” candidates in Ontario. It uses practical academic and hands-on curriculum and encompasses the job task objectives of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) with the main focus on the grid tied FIT and microFIT programs and the Canadian Electrical Code.

C.O.R.E’s curriculum is taught by industry proven professionals like Dr. D. Farahmand, P. Eng., who is the Dean of Students and teaches the required basic academic courses. Layne Kulchecki is one of C.O.R.E’s first Solar graduates, and instructs in full-time system design, including “hands-on” laboratory/field classes. Philip Coulter also gives the school his 40 years of teaching and engineering experience in all areas of renewable energy, and is the Chief Administrator and Corporate President.
