The skills, abilities, attitudes, and orientation of the students toward research and technical work can be recognized as a result of teaching and learning activities. Inadequate training facilities, poor physical and social conditions may compromise the effectiveness of instruction and learning. Setting up a supportive environment is crucial for efficient instruction and learning of useful knowledge and skills. Students in Electrical/Electronic Engineering related discipline could benefit from training in solar energy system design and installation through the use of practical training aids by understanding the application of what they are learning in a real-world setting. In this research, solar system training aid was developed. The development of the model is as the result of taken adequate design consideration/analysis, choice of the components, units testing/simulation while the overall hardware wiring and implementation was guided by standard electrical configuration techniques. The youth trained on such facility can subsequently start their own business to meet the country's needs for solar energy system design, procurement, installation, capability testing and maintenance. In order to fulfill the population's growing need, this will significantly lead to job creation, employment, and the production of electricity.
