This month, Moss Construction enrolled the first 20 participants in its innovative Solar Internship Program, which trains future leaders in the growing utility-scale solar construction field.

“The Moss Apprenticeship Program was developed to respond to the workforce needs facing our growing industry, as well as to address the recently passed IRA Act requiring travel worker ratios,” said Andrew McAllister, president and chief scaling officer of Moss. It will strengthen its focus on safety and quality by developing a dedicated workforce.

The program is run in conjunction with the Florida Department of Education. Upon completion of the program, trainees will receive a nationally recognized certificate in solar installation. The program will be expanded to cover all states where Moss typically builds solar and battery projects in the country.

“Our trainees receive 4,000 hours of supervised on-the-job training in all aspects of solar construction, along with 288 hours of related technical education,” McAllister said. “As part of our program, we provide leadership and key life skills designed to intellectually empower our workforce. Our mission is two-fold, to create a career-oriented, highly skilled, and well-trained workforce and well-rounded families ready to achieve their potential. That’s our mission.

Moss’ Solar Installer Apprenticeship Program is open to all Moss team members. To be considered for the program, applicants must be at least 18 years old and meet other established program requirements.
