Entry-Level PV Course Providing NABCEP Entry-Level PV Exam:
This is one of eight courses in the award- winning Renewable Energy Technology Diploma Series. The classroom lectures of the REPV workshop are dedicated to the technical aspect of photovoltaics, including system types, components, applications, design and best practices for installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. A hands-on day installing a fully integrated grid-tied PV system pulls together the classroom knowledge and rounds out the 5 day workshop.
An optional NABCEP Entry-Level Exam is offered at the conclusion of the course. This training counts toward the entry level educational requirement (other requirements needed) on the journey to becoming a NABCEP Certified PV installer.
