Our PV200 and PV300 and Online PV Design & Installation courses are Accredited Training Programs through the Institute for Sustainable Power Quality and we are Approved NABCEP Providers to administer the Entry Level Exam upon successful completion of these couses.
Entry Level Program: Our PV 200 Design & Installation course & our Online PV Design & Installation eCourse prepares one for taking the Entry Level Exam. Our PV 200 course is an instructional program that stresses basic concepts and specific skill sets that underlie photovoltaic system applications. Participants receive a Certificate of Completion after completing our PV200 course & this qualifies them for registering for the Entry Level Exam. Successful Entry Level PV test takers will be presented with a suitable-for-framing Passing Score Achievement document. The document clearly articulates that the recipient has demonstrated their basic knowledge of the principals of the application, design, installation and operation of off-grid and grid-tie solar electric systems.
NABCEP's Solar PV Installer Certification is a high-level credential based on proven installation experience, an extensive application process, and successfully passing a rigorous written examination which is given 2 times a year by NABCEP. It verifies that the certificant has met predetermined and standardized criteria. It is a mark of excellence for the PV practitioner and it becomes a way for consumers to differentiate among vendors. Our PV 300 Advanced Systems course satisfies the coursework hours required to sit for the NABCEP Solar PV Installer Certification Exam, however, there are additional requirements that are necessary.
