    Dear sir,
    I would like to express my interest in solar training programs. And the current program organised by your team in march 2017 seems very exciting & interesting. I’m definitely joining in for the program, and have started with the procedure as well.

    Although, I was concerned if you could kindly intimate me about any more solar programs that you would be organising in future.
    Would really be happy to know about more upcoming solar training programs.

    Sajo Varghese.
