The tutorial consists of 48 videos in total, grouped in seven thematic blocks. After introducing to the basics of concentrating solar power (CSP), the course units impart substantial knowledge and practical experience about quality control and project planning in CSP plants. The video language is English.

The video presentations were produced in the year 2012 within the enerMENA project, which spread knowledge on concentrating solar technologies and trained technicians and engineers in the countries of the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). The project was coordinated by DLR and received funding from the German Foreign Office.
