1. Rationale

Today the world has realized the importance of renewable energy for the survival of our planet and as a solution to the energy crisis facing all continents, especially Africa. According to its geographical location, each continent or country operates a renewable energy source over another. Africa is the sunniest continent of the world, especially we talk about solar energy and especially solar PV. The sun is seen as the most viable and sustainable for energy problems facing the African continent (especially in rural areas). Therefore, there is a significant demand growth of solar photovoltaics. Unfortunately, there is still a huge deficit of qualified technicians. We must therefore train technicians in large numbers and as quickly as possible to fill that need.
