Sean White and Bill Brooks explain things well and are very reponsive to to questions during the course. Very recommended course to take.

This is the best course for solar that you can get. I started last year as a laborer, worked my way as a technician and now I am a field manager due to this course. I use the information every day on our job sites, I feel confident with what I know and the results show in our arrays.

This course is full of useful information, sure to increase your working knowledge of PV systems and their installation. Sean's approach helps to retain dense material with humor and in depth explanations. I'm thankful that this is the path I took towards my NABCEP PVIP certification.

I've taken a lot of online classes, and this course is the best I've ever taken. Sean really takes the time to thoroughly explain course material and is very responsive on the discussion board. I have no doubts that I will pass the PVIP exam on my first attempt. Thanks Sean!

If you want to level up in the solar industry, there is no better way to do it than to become a NABCEP PVIP. If you want to study for the PVIP exam, there is no place better to do that than HeatSpring.

Adam Pounds

Sean and Bill are excellent resources for PV professionals of all levels of expertise.

Great course with a lot of technical information that has expanded my knowledge and abilities in the solar industry.

Matthew Oliver

I've learned a ton of core knowledge from this course. Personally, the handbook 'Solar PV Engineering and Installation' by Sean White is an absolute must for walking through this course with it in hand.

Josiah Parker

Comparing my knowledge prior to taking this course to after completion, I feel I have gained much and am in a much better position to take the PVIP exam.

Jeffrey Ellis
Director of Operations, New Homes East Region, Sunnova Energy

I am so glad I dedicated the time and expenses for this course. I struggled with the best way to study for the NABCEP and I feel this really keeps one on track and focused. Great course, great instructor and great material!

As a 15-year veteran of the residential solar business, this course was valuable to me for clarifying and reinforcing the "Why" and "How" behind all the "What" I've learned to do over the years. Never too late to learn more, and I'm looking forward to taking (and passing!) the PVIP exam and adding the NABCEP cert to my name and my business. Get started in solar on the right foot with the right knowledge, or build on what you know and move to the next step of expertise and value. More solar, yes, and especially MORE SOLAR DONE RIGHT.

Ben Swanson

A great course second to none. It seems long but there is so much to get through. A must for PV installers

very funny guy, the course is long and technical but Shawn was able to handle it and make it a bit fun.

Ricardo Mugica Lara

As a licensed master electrician. I didn't need the NEC over view, Im pretty sure I can thumb my way around the code book.

well this is great help.

The Heatspring Solar PV 40-hour Advanced Certification Training was a crucial resource for leveling up my knowledge in the quickly developing solar industry. I am far more confident in my work as a solar operations lead, and can apply it in many different areas throughout the industry. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is taking their training seriously and wants to pursue a career in solar.

Michael Spaniol
Renewable Energy Officer, Energy Advantage Roof & Solar

This online course is the best of both worlds. The videos allow you to work at your own pace, but the instructor is always able to be reached and is very eager to answer questions or just talk solar.

Alec Schweitzer

Great course, great instructors, up to date materials, and enjoyable.

John Amundson
Commercial Solutions Manager, All Energy Solar

I would have no chance of passing this exam without this course. The practice exams and explanations are great ways to make sure I'm accurately applying the information I'm learning. I passed the first practice exam I took, which really reduced my fear and stress surrounding the exam. Super grateful for the information I learned!

Emily Sigmund
Solar Designer, StraightUp Solar

I won't know how effective the course is until I take the exam.

Peter Keller
Field Supervisor, Renewable Energy Systems

This course is not only good for getting the NABCEP PVIP. It also prepares you to pass electrical exams for Master, or Journeyman. I highly recommend this course.

Lester Gray
Owner, Tron Solar

Students : We do not learn , we ABSORB ! The key is repetitiveness !

Chris Hasenzahl
Master Electrician, Deborah Bradley Construction & Management Services

I highly recommend this NABCEP PVIP training course by Sean White/Bill Brooks. I have really learned alot and nothing beats direct training from industry experts with in depth knowledge/experience of the NEC and what's required for passing NABCEP Exams...so get enrolled!!!

Deju Nation
CEO/Manager, Renewable Power Systems Ltd.

Hip Hip horray!

Garrett Hartwell

Would prefer to be anonymous: The instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging and the self paced format allowed me to work at my own pace and let the information sink in.

Brian Powers

As someone who has some experience with installation, but who is still learning, this course really helped make sense of the National Electric Code and brought my understanding to a whole different level. In addition to all of the materials, having access to Sean via the discussion forum where you can ask any questions you can think up was also really valuable. I'm feeling much more prepared to take the NABCEP exam than I was when I started.

Riley Neugebauer
Trainer, Solar for Women & Footprint Project

My knowledge of PV design has increased immensely by taking this course. I would suggest it to anyone pursuing a career in Solar.

If you're just starting out in Solar PV or are switching your career path to solar, this course is going to give you the real info that people in the solar industry deal with every day, AND help you pass the N.A.B.C.E.P. P.V.I.P. exam.

Daniel Harp
Solar Designer, A&R Solar

Great in depth information and a little fun along the way. It's clear that Mr. White has a real passion for solar and has genuine experience in the industry.

Ashton Thurneyssen
Senior Manager, GAF Energy LLC

I am really happy I took this course because without it I would not have qualified to take a NABCEP test. Now I can take my PVS exam and after I get experience in the field I can take the PVIP exam.

Starsky Dias
Service, Ceu&Sol Energia Solar

A VERY in-depth and detailed course that will enable you to become knowledgeable and confident within the PV industry. This is an incredible tool and resource (the only one you'll likely need) to prepare for the NABCEP PVIP exam! There is a plethora of extra/additional content that supplements the core material to prepare for the NABCEP PVIP exam. Sean White and Bill Brooks are not only guru's, been in the industry for decades, but also help write the NEC code that this course prepares you to be examined. Great teaching style to help lighten the material. Thank you Sean!

Michael Morse

Excellent course. Clearly taught by a very knowledgable teacher. I am preparing for the NABCEP PVIP exam and this was the perfect study guide. Many practice exams with the answers explained in great detail. The ability to work at my own pace but still having instructor feedback and responses makes for a very convenient and smooth learning process. If you are preparing for any NABCEP exam, this course is a must.

Duncan Bryla

watch the videos as mach as you need to understand as much as you can, and to at least navigate the NEC fast and effectively

Adriano Orfei
Crew Lead Installer , Freedom Solar Power

I would highly recommend this course for an intensive detail of everything you should know about solar.

Patrick Monteith
Installer, Okanagan Solar

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who needs to prepare for the NABCEP exam. Although I am a master electrician I am relatively new to the solar industry and found the advanced material in the course to be clearly presented and easy to understand. The practice exams and the explanation videos to the questions on the practice exams were so valuable in helping me gain the knowledge to be able to pass the NABCEP exam and also help in the field with installs and maintenance!

Randy Romans

I passed my test the first time because of Sean's classes and books

This is a great course to prepare for the NABCEP professional exam. It has deepened my understanding of solar, electric, and the NEC, and has not only prepared me for the exam, but has also grown me to do my job better. It's great that you can go at your own pace, you gain valuable knowledge without constant pressure of deadlines. Sean is a great teacher, and this is a great course.

Marthinus van der Merwe
Solar Foreman, August Roofing Inc.

The Heatspring Advanced PV course is great. There is a large amount of material provided, covering all the exam objectives. Sean and Bill present the material in an often entertaining manner, which helped keep me interested and engaged, so I could learn and retain the knowledge I needed. It definitely was key to helping me pass the exam.

Ken Nadsady
Owner/Lead Installer, AviSun Renewable Energy

The course goes way beyond just learning about solar. All the additional information related to our craft made me feel like I got more than my money’s worth.
