SERC is accredited by the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) to offer training for renewable energy professions. The trained participants are examined and licensed as qualified technicians by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA). The energy field in Kenya suffers a deficiency of skilled personnel qualified to design, install and effectively maintain modern energy systems. SERC is bridging this gap by providing practical oriented, hands-on training courses. To date, more than three thousand technicians have been trained in our programmes at SERC and at cooperating institutes in East and West Africa.
