    If the US solar photovoltaic market is to grow routinely and cumulatively at 40% every year, there needs to be ever more rapid and effective ways to train prospective PV installers and code inspectors as well as keep existing PV installers and inspectors current on the latest PV product developments. This training needs to accommodate the near constant movement of PV inspectors and installers as well as utilize visual, auditory, and tactile learning techniques to ensure retention of the training content. To address this need, Sandia National Laboratories and New Mexico State University (NMSU) have been developing a series of short YouTube-style, multimedia training modules on specific, specialized topics that would be most useful to PV installers and inspectors alike. Available online, the training videos can be accessed on a variety of portable and mobile devices. This webinar introduced the training modules developed to date, provided more details on the rationale and production of this material, and included clips as examples of the online content. Vipin Gupta, physicist at Sandia National Laboratories, and Gabriela Cisneros, Research Engineer at New Mexico State University (NMSU), and Corey Asbill, NMSU, are the presenters.
