Today represents the first day of the Caribbean Energy Institute technical training (Lab Day) Today’s focus will be the safe usage of power tools, like the impact drill, torque wrench, and other tools critical to the successful installation of renewable energy systems.  At the beginning of every lab, all students check their personal safety equipment to confirm that they are operating in a safe and organized manner.

Next, the cohort is broken into teams where each team establishes the team leader.  As the team leader,  it is this individual’s responsibility to manage the group regarding safety, materials, and implementation.  Each team completes a given task, then rotates to the next station to perform the next assigned task.

Hands-on experience is critical to the success of the trainees and will prepare them for practical associated with the in-class training.
