The national system of qualification and professional formation (NSQPF) provides a structured framework for the provision of vocational training in 26 different professional areas, among which “energy” is also considered. Within this area, the following certifications are listed, along with the training requirements necessary for their achievement: 

  • Installation and maintaining of PV facilities; 
  • Installation and maintaining of solar thermal facilities;
  • Installation and maintaining management of wind parks.

INCUAL (the National Qualifications Institute, a technical instrument of the General Council of Vocational Education and Training) elaborates and actualises the national catalogue of professional qualifications. On the basis of this catalogue, courses aimed at reaching those qualifications are offered and developed by the Ministry of Education or the local authorities, as confirmed by INCUAL.


Any professional who wishes to develop a specific professional knowledge and/or to obtain an official certification related to its activity.
