Although I have been in the electrical field for over 25 years, I don't believe I would have done as well on the test without this course. I highly recommend taking this course.”
- James Rodrigue, Green Street Solar
Sean has the unique ability to understand a student's gap in educational understanding and to fill in that gap in an extremely efficient manner. He is able to naturally work through technical information in an engaging path that builds toward proficiency rather than confuses the student. I have been fortunate to receive training from some of the top educators in the world and I would easily consider Sean as one of them.”

Sean White is an awesome teacher! His teaching methods are interesting, engaging, fun, informative, and super helpful. I love his down to earth personality and approach, and how he goes step by step through the process. It's a great walk-through for learning how to navigate through the code book - which is a great real world simulation for the exam conditions. Also, I love the handy-dandy calculator short cuts as well as thinking about things such as the test room and state of mind, etc. Plus his sense of humor is an added benefit. I will keep drilling and reviewing the videos and materials, but I feel like I am really ready already. I would highly highly recommend this for anyone planning to sit for the NABCEP exam. In fact, I've been telling some of my coworkers about how great this course is already. Thanks! ”

I felt very well prepared for the NABCEP Installer Exam after taking this course. The test covers so much material that it is difficult to create a course that touches on everything you may be tested on. This course seems to do that about as well as is possible given the scope and difficulty of the test. Recommended.”
