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.

by Carey Walter, CEO, Earthbound Electric LLC 09/21/2022

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.

by Jonathan Golebiewski 08/17/2022

This course really helped guide me in my studies and provided a lot of new information. I am very eager to take the exam now.

by Ron Smith, Owner, Mesa Solar LLC 03/22/2022

The video course was made very well, with plenty of practice exam questions and good explanations of the material

by Michael Yaple, Site Supervisor, Onsite Solar LLC 06/21/2021

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.

by Ronald Bayes, Cofounder and Director of Business Development, Sunblaze Energy 02/04/2021

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

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

by Ted Monhollon 01/20/2023

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

by Lester Gray, Owner, Tron Solar 01/16/2023

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.

by Chris Hasenzahl, Master Electrician, Deborah Bradley Construction & Management Services 11/10/2022

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

by Deju Nation, CEO/Manager, Renewable Power Systems Ltd. 10/30/2022

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!!!

by Garrett Hartwell, Owner, Power Northwest 10/15/2022

Hip Hip horray!

by Brian Powers 09/06/2022

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.

by Riley Neugebauer, Trainer, Solar for Women & Footprint Project 05/17/2022

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.

by Michael DiPanfilo, Project Engineer, Earthlight Technologies 05/01/2022

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

by Ed A 04/18/2022

by Daniel Harp, Solar Designer, A&R Solar 04/14/2022

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.

by Ashton Thurneyssen, Senior Manager, GAF Energy LLC 03/04/2022

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.

by Starsky Dias, Service, Ceu&Sol Energia Solar 06/15/2021

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.

by Michael Morse 03/27/2021

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!

by Duncan Bryla 03/23/2021

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.

by Adriano Orfei, Crew Lead Installer , Freedom Solar Power 01/02/2021

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

by Patrick Monteith, Installer, Okanagan Solar 12/18/2020

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

by Randy Romans, owner, Randy Romans Electric 12/12/2020

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!

by Richard Phillips, Project Manager, Conundrum Technologies 11/22/2020

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

by Marthinus van der Merwe, Solar Foreman, August Roofing Inc. 11/02/2020

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.

by Ken Nadsady, Owner/Lead Installer, AviSun Renewable Energy 10/23/2020

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.

by Hilario Godines, Owner, Renewable Energy Of Texas 10/16/2020

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.

by Tristan Wall, Superintendent , JR&CO 07/20/2020

I found Sean's instruction to be very valuable and an enjoyable way to learn what I need to know while going for the NABCEP PV Installer exam.

by Mangal Maharjan, Design Engineer, EDF Renewables 07/15/2020

Though I am designing the Solar PV system for residential and commercial since 8 years, this course made me mode so confident and more accurate design. I recommend to take this course who are in and thinking to come in PV sector.

by Richard Fry, Owner, RKFRY,Inc 05/18/2020

I would recommend this course for anyone looking to obtain certification. I have taken other courses and they do not have the detailed explanations that this course covers. Also Sean's knowledge as an electrician speaks volumes.

by Sterling Jessop, CCO, 5 Star Solar 05/09/2020

I would strongly recommend Sean's course(s) to anyone looking to advance their knowledge about solar. His courses are very well designed to create a learning experience that makes you think about and understand each topic very well.

by Jeremy Booska, Operations Manager, Windmar Home Florida inc 05/05/2020

by brendan blank, Assistant Project Manager, ForeFront Power 04/11/2020

Highly recommended! Sean's humor, industry experience and insight made covering the material very manageable.

by Pam Quan, Lead Installer/ Certified Electrician, Luminalt Solar Energy Solutions 04/07/2020

A very thoroughly explained prep resource to take the NABCEP. So grateful I invested and took the class. Not only am I more confident to tackle the NABCEP exam, I have a year access to the materials so I can really solidify my knowledge and confidence. Thank you so much! Can't wait to crush the exam!!!

by Justin Griffith, CEO/Owner, Pure Energy 04/06/2020

I enjoyed this course so much I'm already reaching out to try and get a program together to get all my employees NABCEP certified.

by Robert Fiske 03/23/2020

The Heatspring NABCEP training has been the best professional online training I have seen, particularly for a subject as involved and lengthy as Solar PV and the NEC.. Many, Many Thanks, I'm sure I'll see you guys again! -RRF

by Shane Bridgmanhen 03/14/2020

Heatspring did a great job making Sean White the instructor for this course. His explanation are very clear and understandable. I have a strong feeling I am going to A's this exam.

You will be known inAfrica before you visit. I will be your marketing guy. Love you man.

by Brian Bresnahan 12/22/2019

An excellent course wherein I began with a beginner, associate's knowledge of topics to now having confidence with advanced topics. The instructor, Sean White, is a treasure trove of knowledge, experience and insight and his method is as upbeat as it is complete.

by Miguel Garza, Lead Engineer, Galt Energy 12/01/2019

Don't hesitate to take this course, I really learned a lot. Very very recommended.

by Jesse Canaris, O&M Portfolio Manager, Namaste Solar 11/12/2019

Dr. White's course is extremely effective for NABCEP exam preparation not only in that the teaching style & course content made it easy to understand, but also that the integrated community participation/instructor communication enables students to reinforce concepts based on their specific learning style. Having students publicly post real-world questions and scenarios further expands on the content and clarifies unique circumstances. Dr. White's timely and encompassing responsiveness to student queries also serves as a desirable characteristic that would be welcome in any classroom whether on the web or in person.

by Cameron Carlson, Smart Wave Solar 11/10/2019

The course has been very helpful.

by Samuel Dekyem, PE, Engineer 11/06/2019

I am an Electrical Engineer, and have been using the code book for quite a while, yet this is the first time I have clearly understood some of the unclear parts of the code book.

by Tim Grandjean, Energy & Sustainability Technologist, Shift Energy Group 09/30/2019

Sean is an extremely detail oriented and experienced PV professional with a natural aptitude for teaching. Any time I had questions, we was extremely prompt in his responses which shows his dedication to seeing you make it through. Between these traits and his syntactic course delivery method, this course has been essential in sharpening me up prior to writing my NABCEP PVIP exam. Thanks Sean!
