Since then, hundreds of engineers, architects, craftsmen and interested citizens have taken part in the maxx | academy courses in Southern Africa. All courses are centrally managed and quality assured by the maxx energy team. The training itself is organized by our local maxx | academies. maxx | solar academies are operated in South Africa in Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.
