Becoming a NABCEP Certified PV Installer will require longer and more advanced education to meet the new stringent requirements to qualify for the NABCEP Certified PV Installer Exam. NABCEP changed the amount and type of PV installer training needed and the number of PV installations required.
Nationally recognized ONTILITY Solar Training has responded quickly to the newly changed NABCEP PV Installer Certification requirements. ONTILITY offers the new Certified
PV Installer Track of courses that includes Online Solar Fundamentals Course and the Advanced Solar Electric Training followed by the Advanced PV Design Course.
NABCEP changed the amount and type of PV installer training and the number of PV installations required. All candidates will have to document fifty eight (58) hours of advanced PV training
that follows the NABCEP PV JTA and will have to complete an OSHA-10 course.
“Much of the required solar training classes, 40 of the 58 hours, must now cover advanced PV installation topics from the NABCEP JTA. It is this shift to more advanced solar training course material that ONTILITY has responded to with its new Advanced Solar Electric Training course.” According to Ken Whiteside, ONTILTY Director of Education, “We have long been a strong supporter of NABCEP and its certification programs and we welcome the opportunity to increase installer readiness and the skills of solar installation professionals with our new solar installer training courses.”
The ONTILITY five day advanced solar training course will cover the full range of topics addressed by the newly updated NABCEP PV Installer Job Task Analysis and will thoroughly cover variety of industry standard PV system design and installation best practices.
The ONTILITY Solar Training course development team has introduced a new 88 Hr Certified
PV Installer Track to more than satisfy the 58 hour educational requirement that was announced by NABCEP on January 14, 2012. This track includes the 24 Hr Online Solar Fundamentals Course, in addition to the 40 hour Advanced Solar Electric Training Class, followed by the 24 hour Advanced
Solar PV Design Course which can be taken online or at ONTILITY's Houston Solar Training Center.
