Zerlina Torras just completed a 5 month internship with Solar One and AC Power. “These camps gave me the opportunity to grow. In both camps, my confidence and initiative were pretty poor at first. As I warmed up, I became more independent and confident. in my ability to: at SolarOne, teach, and at AC Power, learn, listen and make the most of what I’ve learned,” said Zerlina, who will start her first year at University of Vermont this autumn.
By working with both organizations, Zerlina was able to apply the skills learned in Solar One-led PV trainings to AC Power’s solar development work.
At the college level, AC Power is working with Solar One to leverage their workforce development expertise and tailor in-person NABCEP certification training for college-level students.
