Solar Bootcamp

Unlike other training and workforce development programs, Student ACES Workforce Bootcamps dedicate 75% of its time to teaching the foundational skills all employers define as necessary to thrive at an organization. Student ACES has partnered with top industry leaders to ensure that students across Florida have the opportunity to work in some of the nation’s top industries and companies.

Upcoming Bootcamp

Moss Construction which is contracted by FPL to build solar fields throughout the state of Florida is looking to hire hundreds of young men and women to work in solar installation with a pathway to supervision.

The next Solar Bootcamp kicks off in Belle Glade on September 13, 2021. This bootcamp will last 2 weeks, Monday – Friday from 9am – 2pm. Full and successful participation in the Solar Bootcamp is required to be recommended for employment with Moss Construction.

It is an entry level job in the Solar Generation Construction industry. The applicants who successfully finish the Solar Boot Camp will be working for Moss Construction who is contracted by FPL.
