The qualitative and quantitative leap that EKI is undertaking requires reinforcing the capacity for commissioning the installations: we need local technical staff with experience in electricity and knowledge of solar photovoltaics. However, as this sector is still in its infancy in most of Sub-Saharan Africa, training is still scarce and these profiles are often difficult to find.

With this new initiative, we want to promote photovoltaic vocational training and help generate local specialists to help us install and maintain our own installations.

We are already working with the Salesians of Don Bosco network, which has extensive training experience in the sub-Saharan region; with the Basque Vocational Training System, which is already training technicians; and with key local agents, to promote a training offer that meets the needs of the different regions, especially where we foresee a greater number of installations.
