Sean and Bill are great. They do a good job of being easy to follow through dense material. It was so convenient to be able to do one program that fulfilled all my courses requirements.

Great job on making this fun and educational at the same time.
by Justin McComas, Area Superintendent , INTERMOUNTAIN ELECTRIC, INC. 10/17/2022
For the purpose of CEU's this course was great. It is also setup very nicely for prospective personnel looking to obtain licensing through NABCEP. I am a 26 year electrician also and the NEC content was spot on and easy to understand. I would recommend this course for anyone obtaining CEU's and looking to sit for the PVIP exam.

I've been learning from Sean White for about 6 years now. He's a really good teacher, and I would (and do) recommend his videos to anyone who wants to advance their knowledge in the solar field.

Sean is an entertaining presenter which helped keep my interest during the training. The content is great and applicable to what I do everyday. I leave this class feeling more confident in my work and having learned a few things.
by David Kozin, A&R Solar 02/08/2023
The videos were fun and I knew I could rely on the expertise and knowledge of both Sean and Bill.
by Joshua Gillebaard 01/16/2023
Sean White and Bill Brooks are industry experts with deep knowledge on so many aspects of PV design and code compliance. And they somehow manage to make every module interesting, even the trigonometry review module.

I will be coming back for more quality training!
by Reme Meck, Solar Design Engineer 10/10/2022
This is the second time I've taken continuing education credits for renewing my NABCEP license, and the first time taking Sean White's Heatspring course. It has been extremely comprehensive with many deep dives on critical subjects, the depth and breadth of content covered by it is 2nd to none. I will be using Sean White's courses for my CE credits for the foreseeable future and recommend them to anyone looking to do the same.

Thanks for taking the time
by Nicole Sanches, Energy Desk Manager, Perch Energy 06/10/2022
What a great way to brush up on the NEC and solar requirements! Sean's podcast helped me pass the NABCEP the first time, and taking the course for continuing ed has been just as helpful! I know I will go back and listen to some of the materials again as I run into project work that relates.
by Jeffrey Cantin 05/08/2022
Comprehensive resource for solar, energy storage, EV and other great topics. Well worth the time.

Nabcep certification and training will put you far above the rest in the Solar industry. Its improved the quality and effective production of my installs. As well as made me a better trainer/leader.
by Clara (Sam) Burnham, Owner, Burnham & Sun 12/13/2020
Taking the course at my own pace and having access to the lessons for a year are important to me.
by GEORGE FLANDERS, TECHNICIAN /MAINTENANCE ELECTRICIAN, N/A 10/28/2020
I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO ANY ONE, WHO WOULD LIKE TO BE A PV-SOLAR INSTALLER. HAVE NOT SEEN ANYONE WHO DOES THIS, LIKE SEAN WHITE DOES. SO MANY EXAMPLES. SOME ONE OF THESE EXAMPLES MUST BE RECORDED INTO YOUR LONG TERM MEMORY.
by Brandon Bell, PV Designer, The Energy Shop, Inc. 08/12/2020
Great course! Clear and concise with real world examples.
by Tanmay Pant, Lead Back End PV Engineer, Venture Solar 07/20/2020
This course is the best way to gain the CEU's required for NABCEP exam while also gaining the required skill to pass the board exams. The topics covered are vast and extensive material is available to gain relevant experience in PV System design and code knowledge. Recommended for anyone appearing for NABCEP board exams!
by Henry LaRosa, Sales Executive, Long Island Power Solutions 02/19/2020
Took this course for my NABCEP PV Technical Sales Exam and Re-cert. This course packs all the info into an easy to navigate platform. Super easy to follow along. And if you take your time with it and follow all of Sean's instructions, you are almost certain to pass the exam!

The is by far the best online NABCEP PV Professional Installation prep course. Highly recommended.
by Jason Mendenhall, Senior Project Manager, Artisun Solar 04/06/2019
Sean is a great instructor and very knowledgeable. He breaks down each questions to help you understand the basics of PV.

waste of money and time.
by Abdur Rahman,P.E., President , A & R Consultants.LLC 09/17/2018
This course provides me with a good understanding of solar PV Engineering and Installation. I think it was a good investment to take this course. This course helped me to pass the NABCEP Certified PV Installation Professional exam on the first try.
by James Freasier, President/CEO, F&W Electrical 12/26/2017
I really liked Dr. White's approach to teaching the different and difficult technical issues encounter in the design, installation and maintenance on a PV system.
by Eric Lichtenheld, Owner, Intelligent Solutions LLC 10/21/2017
I took the NABCEP PV Installer exam this morning and did not feel that it was as difficult as I remembered the NABCEP entry level exam to be. But I did not have the benefit of Sean's teaching back then. No matter what my score on the exam today, I am sure that it will be at least 30 points higher for having taken this course! Thanks Sean!
by Carola Voelker, Director of Projects, Centroplan USA LLC 10/09/2017
The course was very helpful for me. It freshed up the rather dry and sometimes boring/ difficult topics of the NEC.
by Gary Gonzales, Owner, Renergy Solar, LLC 08/11/2017
To Whom It May Concern: I searched for online educational options after I committed to study for the NABCEP Professional Installers Certification Exam. I studied daily for 3 months; ie, including weekends. Admittedly, there were multiple instances of frustration and feelings of hopelessness. When you experience, and you will, just persevere. I suspect frustration is normal when trying to learn something new and technical such as solar. My preparation consisted of meticulously reviewing and re-reviewing each of Sean's videos; including completing each practice problem multiple times. I also changed the variables in the problems and solved them for practice. Sean's approach to presenting the content was key in my exam preparation. I found it beneficial extrapolating concepts in his videos and applying them in potential 'real life' circumstances. In addition, Sean's availability and responsiveness was extremely beneficial. He responses were consistently timely and thorough - he is a very valuable resource. Together with Sean's involvement/support and the content of the course, I was well prepared for the exam. Having access to valuable tools (eg, Sean's course) alone will not get the job done. You must commit to put in the necessary time and effort. Though I have a few degrees in science and business, the exam proved to be one of the most challenging I have yet to encounter. Though I passed the exam upon my first attempt, I walked out of the session not really knowing how I did (I guess that, too, is normal). In closing, I highly recommend Sean's course to anyone who is serious about passing the exam. Good luck!

I normally don't do well with online courses, I like being in a classroom better, but this was the best online course I've taken, Sean really knows his stuff.
by Josh Gray, Project Manager, Solar Energy Systems 02/02/2017
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!
by Joss Jaffe 10/23/2016
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.
by Ken Stewart, President, Easley Electric Inc. 10/21/2016
Come back to me in 6 weeks, after I find out whether I passed the exam tomorrow (10/22/16)! LOL
by Mike Veeder, President, Kooltemp Heating & Cooling 09/08/2016
Sean's course is a must before the NABCEP test!!!
