“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 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

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.
