709: NABCEP Solar Certification: Expert Insights from the Top Trainer, Sean White

Published on: 18th June, 2024

When it comes to certifications and training in the solar industry, one name (or label) stands out and is recognized as the gold standard: NABCEP.  The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners is the certifying body for Solar PV and Battery Installers here in North America, and I’ve been told that the NABCEP certification test is as hard as the Professional Engineering (PE) exam! And, one trainer is the top educator for NABCEP (and many other areas of solar) in North America…

Nico sat down with Sean White, a leading figure in solar education for more than 16 years, during the recent NABCEP Conference. Sean is also the IREC Trainer of the Year and Trainer of the Decade award winner; suffice to say, Sean's expertise is at another level. 

Sean’s "Introduction to Solar PV Design, Installation and Code - Self Study" is one of the most popular and reviewed courses in the industry - 11,0000+ students and nearly 2000 positive reviews!
