Sean White is an excellent instructor. I highly recommend his courses.

by Chris Young, Solar Installer, Peninsula Solar 11/04/2022

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 David Garganese, Owner, Response Electrical Services 10/25/2022

I always go to Heatspring for renewable education. These guys know it better than anyone!

by Andrew Holmstrom, C&I Solar Energy, Arch Solar 10/10/2022

I really enjoyed this course. It helped me to get a flavor for how far things have come, as well as how far they will go. Very applicable to real life, and will be used regularly!

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.

The instructor has a way to keep you awake and makes a complicated topic interesting.

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 Chris Connelly, Owner/President, Solar Bear Energy 05/19/2022

I have taken a number of Sean White's courses, and they have all been excellent. He is able to break down the complexities of the subject matter into terms that are easy to comprehend. Great Trainer!

by Ed Zinthefer, President, Arch Electric Inc 04/09/2022

This course provide me the CEU's necessary to maintain my NABCEP credentials. One of the reasons I selected this course was to gain additional industry knowledge. I was pleased with time spent and the purchase value which far exceeds other education platforms I have experienced that resulted in more of a check the box type of CEU's with little educational value. Thanks for a well written course.

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 Trang Donovan, Owner, Energy Shepherds 03/04/2022

A spoonful of Sean White helps the NEC go down.

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!

by Adam Pounds, Project Manager, King Solar Inc 02/21/2021

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 Jason Hawksworth 11/30/2022

Sean White was an extraordinary instructor with a wealth of knowledge and an ability to illustrate his knowledge in a way that is understandable and not over the head of the average student,

by Eric Israelsen, Summit Energy 11/29/2022

Great course from Sean!

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 David Stimson 09/02/2022

If you want a good mix of high-level information about energy storage systems, as well as a deep dive into what makes them tick, then this is the course for you! Would highly recommend for professionals who are in the installation/implementation space or even in the development space if you are just looking to learn more about energy storage. My brain hurts after this course, but in a good way!

by Ryan Warren, Founder, QstN 08/10/2022

I learned a lot, thank you!

by Jeff Gowdy, CEO, Envigorate Renewable Energy Services LLC 07/12/2022

The course well very detailed. So much practical application to my current and dream roles. The expertise and wealth of knowledge is palpable in each module. Highly recommend.

by Rocco Fucetola 05/31/2022

Excellent Discussion board feedback.

by Art Krebs, CEO, Krebs Ventures LLC dba Construction Art 05/27/2022

The best energy storage course to day. A must if in the energy industry.

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 Emma Power, Consultant, Fundamental Inc. 04/21/2022

A great overview of the current energy storage market and tech options. A good balance of general info and technical details. This is my second course with Sean and I've enjoyed both!

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 Josh Mason, Dealer Manager, Michigan Solar Solutions 05/12/2021

This is a necessary course for anyone interested in Energy Storage. Sean White takes a sometimes boring subject and infuses it with just enough personality to make it enjoyable. This course is absolutely worth the price of admission.

by Nader Shaheen, Electriculture LLC 04/11/2021

Energy storage is the future and there is no better way to start your journey than to take this in-depth course.

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 Jordan Barbin, Project Manager, Alpha Inc 03/18/2021

I've been working in the PV industry for 9 years and wish I took this class when I started. It's taken me years to learn what he teaches in this 18 hour course

by Chelsea Mudge 02/13/2021

This course is perfect for those who have not had much experience in energy storage as well as those who have been in the field. Sean does a fantastic job laying down the basic fundamentals while also layering in the higher-level technical aspects of ESS. He provides the history of the technology and keeps the content relevant to our current times with fun humor sprinkled in to keep things interesting & fresh. I very much intend on taking more courses from Sean after this.

by Jonathan Mooney, Technical Sales Analysist , Pure Power Solutions 02/09/2021

Sean does a fantastic job and diving deep into the subject of solar and energy storage. He seems like he enjoys what he does and it comes across in his tutorials. This is important when learning with online tutorials as they can often be dry and the lack of human engagement can make a class anemic. Sean has the complete opposite effect and it has been a pleasure to attend his class.

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 Robert Clarke, Principal, 621 Energy, LLC 12/06/2020

The content was exactly what I was looking for. Sean's style, excitement and presentation of the materials with a sense of humor made it one of the best courses I have taken. Sean's detailed response to comments and questions goes way beyond what you could reasonably expect from an instructor.

by Abigail Timog 12/01/2020

If you want to learn about energy storage systems from a very fun and upbeat instructor, take this class, you will not regret it!
