SPCP Student Highlight – Lee Chapman
Thanks to some long over due self-motivation and Solar Energy International, I now have a career in the solar industry!
Before making the decision to attend SEI, I had been working for a construction firm that was occasionally contracted by a local PV company to assist with installs. I was hooked after the first job. I knew I needed training but did not know where to begin.
After several months of researching online, I contacted SEI and spoke to Breccia Wilson, SEI Student Services Team Member. She explained the different programs offered and I decided on the Solar Professionals Certificate Program, but was unsure if I could afford it.
Breccia discussed payment options and helped me calculate a monthly payment schedule which made it possible for me to sign up and get started.
In August I attended a lab week in Paonia, Colorado which was a great experience. Not only did I learn a lot during the week but I got to interact with a lot of great instructors and classmates.
After lab week, and some fly fishing in Basalt, I returned to Decorah, Iowa and started working with Go Solar full-time as a crew leader/installer.
My employer, who was the first NABCEP Certified Installer in Iowa, is nearing retirement and is training me to take over the company. I still have one more class at SEI to complete the certificate program yet I already have a career in the industry.
SEI will provide you with the tools and knowledge to succeed in the industry. Thank you SEI! -Lee Chapman
