Some history, and where we’re headed:

  • We spent several years investigating the green energy industry, especially solar, and were amazed at the wide variety of often-conflicting standards & practices in training, certification, and regulations.  So we committed to delivering courses that point to where those elements are likely to stabilize in the market, instead of teaching the “home-grown” information that has commonly been taught for the past 30 years.  Things are changing rapidly now, and moving towards standards & certification.  Boots on the Roof is committed to working with industry associations, manufacturers, installers, government, financers, and educators to implement solar power for businesses and individuals who expect stability, predictability, and return on investment.

Vision Statement:

  • Boots on the Roof is fully committed to train and certify the large numbers of green collar workers required worldwide to overcome the Clean Energy challenges of the 21st century. Through a global business partner network of industry-aligned education we will empower blue to white collar workers to drive their careers forward in the green economy.
  • If you are a general contractor, an electrician, a construction worker or an environmentalist who is ready to do something, look to Boots on the Roof for up-to-the-minute training and certification programs on Solar Energy.
