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 Andrew Smiley, Project Manager, Energy Development Partner LLC 10/24/2022

Great intro to PV have already used information from this class during meetings and projects at work as a Solar land entitlement project manager.

by Aldo Reighn Barzaga, Technical Account Manager, Raicoon Philippines 10/03/2022

I took this course a total beginner at solar technology. This course helps me a lot to understand the technology on a smoothest way and enjoy it the same time.

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.

“Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them”. -Teddy Roosevelt Sean, In the above quote, I think you have the 2nd and 3rd kinds of greatness. Fate placed you at time where your teaching and solar skills are needed to help mankind and the planet (literarily). I am honored to have met you, and to have learned from your super set of solar skills. The Solar Bootcamp was phenomenal. Your solar books helped a lot (good job, well written). The training has the potential to be transformational for the country at a time when this change is critical. Your commitment to making sure we all can learn this science, strategically, make you a national treasure. Thank you.

I really value my education with Heatspring for many reasons. First, I get to learn about many things I never knew about. Another reason is that the teacher here really care about you and your education. Also, I have a lot of chances to make up work during the week. Tutoring is also available this program (free lessons) for those students who don’t understand something, Sean always encourage us to ASK questions he get back to you always! It was an excellence choice to start with Sean.

by Ethan Freund, Associate Project Development Engineer, Ameresco, Inc. 04/09/2022

Awesome class for knowledge fundamentals about solar installations. Key sections include PV string sizing, energy modeling calcs, and advanced energy modeling, shading losses, and system loss calcs!

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 Jason Jacaruso, President, D/E/F Services Group, Ltd 03/06/2022

I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to take the exam and or learn the basics of solar and start getting into the field. Add the convenience or completing the course at your own pass with the timely responses from a "live" instructor to be able to get any and all questions answers is an excellent combination. Cant go wrong on this class - Jason

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.

Great course that has helped me advance my knowledge of the solar industry quickly. Highly recommend as preparation for the NABCEB.

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 Robert Spermo 10/21/2022

Course is well presented and extremely thorough.

This course is really valuable, if you are going to start journey in solar industry.

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 Quinn Keenan, Energy Efficiency Engineer, ICAST 09/01/2022

Sean White is a great teacher and did a wonderful job explaining the course material. Sean takes the time to respond to comments/questions every day. He truly takes the time to help his students, even though it is virtual. The practice exams and quizzes were also great.

by Frank Welte, Managing Member, The Welte Company llc 08/20/2022

I really enjoyed Sean's Solar PV Bootcamp. I learned a lot and look forward to passing my exam. I also look forward to signing up for more classes soon.

by Rony Gonzalez, NA, Intertie Inc 06/10/2022

I really enjoyed taking this course, in which I learned a lot from the basics to advanced information on the solar systems, Batteries and electricity in general. Very thankful, I now on my path to take the exam and I feel very confident based on the material that Sean has put together. Thank you.

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.

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 Leonard Slack, Sr. Electrical design engineer , Jacobs engineering group 04/02/2022

As an electrical PE, I found the course to be a useful, though inefficient, way to gain an understanding of basic solar PV design and troubleshooting. Judging from the sophistication of the material, It appears that the target population lacks basic math skills and struggles with abstract concepts. The tedious repetition and plodding pace made me wish for a 3X speed choice on the videos.

by Steven Bowling, Bowling Electric, Inc. 03/15/2022

Great job Sean!! Thank you very much

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 Gajanan Borikar, Electrical Engineer, Motiva 06/16/2021

Learned a lot in short time. Very confident to pass the Associate Exam and have signed-up for the next 40 hrs PV installation class.

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 James Masse 06/02/2021

Sean will be attentive and answer your questions quickly with great detail. This isn’t your average online course. Thanks to great info and an instructor that really cares about outcomes. Take this class if you’re really interested in learning more about the field of solar.

by Matthew Fenlon, Insulation Technician, Home Energy Inc 06/01/2021

An excellent introduction to the solar industry

by yash asthana 05/28/2021

I recommend this course to all the professionals and students who are in the field of solar energy. I passed my exam in the first go and all the credit goes to my mentor Sean White. The technical aspects which you learn in the course will really helps you to enhance your career in the field of solar energy because heat spring and Sean white has put lot a of hard work in designing the course. Looking forward to learn more from you guys for pv technical sales certification.

by Christopher Noble, Electrician, Blue Raven Solar 05/19/2021

I have been installing residential solar for the past two years. I'm the crew lead for my city. I thought I knew a lot about solar ( I knew enough to get the job passed and complete). After taking JUST the 18 hour portion of this, I realized I didn't!!! I'm feeling much more confident in my career just after the 18 hours. Deciding to take the NABCEP course was the best idea I've ever had. I took this course to better my self in the field I work in. I cant wait for the next 40 hours.
