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 Michael Motola-Barnes 09/25/2020

This course helped answer the questions I didn't know to ask about how to design and install solar energy systems, and put them in context.

by Adam Pounds, Project Manager, King Solar Inc 09/23/2020

I can't believe how convenient and efficient this material was to learn. Half-way through this course I received a preliminary sales call from a customer who was interested in off-grid. Already with what I had learned, I was able to answer his questions much more authoritatively. Super grateful Sean and Hotsprings! Can't wait to get started on my Advanced Training!

by Mark Rasmussen, CVE 09/08/2020

Great course, I don't recommend taking a break mid-course for a couple months tho lol

by Mohamed Bahasan, Energy Engineer , CEDAP 09/01/2020

I enjoyed the course and learned a lot about PV. I liked the do it at your own pace. Sean was Great and very responsive.

by Eric Ross, Lead Solar Installer, Greenlink Energy Solutions 07/31/2020

Sean's enthusiasm and humor make this course #1. I feel very lucky to have taken this course with Sean. His response time was also an amazing feature, since this is all remote learning, it was great to have answers to questions within 18h (give or take). Sean's a great teacher, he knows what's important, and he keeps his courses updated!! I loved my experience and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a NABCEP course in Solar.

by Robert Hayward, Financial Analyst, Home 07/28/2020

A rigorous and comprehensive course, that introduces one to the complexities of Solar Systems, and does a good job preparing you for the NABCEP Associates exam.

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

I enjoyed the class and it's clear that Sean is incredibly knowledgable.

by Nestor Juan Pablo Zapata Diomedi 06/29/2020

The course starts from the very basics to be a PV system hands on installer. It has plenty of useful tips and details for the ones as me that are beginning from scratch, and I think that the experienced ones will also find it useful.

by Adriano Orfei, Crew Lead Installer , Freedom Solar Power 06/02/2020

Great course, surpassed my expectations by far, very updated the information and the mounting systems (quick mount, invisivmount, rails, etc.) Im crew lead at Freedom Solar power in Texas, i have some friends doing courses in other places but they teach old school systems, not very updated. congrats for that, the install tips for flashings, ballasted, etc are very accurate, like very experience installer, resuming, very happy with the course, many of the things that i knew on the course were by hands on, here i could have a better understanding of the theory and the WHY, as well many knew things learned. Thank you so much.

by Pezhman Rahimi, Director of Engineering, Partner Engineering and Science 05/30/2020

Sean White is an outstanding instructor and mentor. I enjoyed this course and looking to start PVIP.

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 Sterling Jessop, CCO, 5 Star Solar 04/13/2020

My experience with the Heat Spring course was very positive. The design of the course was very well put together in order to help advance the overall understanding of PV systems. The course also did a great job of teaching and helping to understand the technical aspects of PV systems. The course instructor did a fantastic job of thoroughly explaining each of the items and having the discussion platform, for instructor guidance and other student interaction and questions/comments, was very helpful. I also found the flexibility of the training schedule to be very beneficial. Thanks Sean!!

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!!!

Graet course for PV beginners. Helps to have some electrical background

by Justin Griffith, CEO/Owner, Pure Energy 03/31/2020

Sean is an amazing teacher and he approaches the subjects with tons of knowledge and is extremely easy to follow. He was very informative and goes above and beyond to make sure you understand the material. Some of the small calculator tricks I wish I had been taught in college and will definitely begin using in my everyday life.

by Justin Dunlap 03/29/2020

This program is an excellent way for those in the PV industry to become familiar with a very wide range of PV design and operation concepts. Sean delivers the information in a way that emphasizes key concepts for all students and provides more in-depth analysis for advanced learners. 5 Stars!

I recommend the online PV Associate course taught by Dr Sean White at Heatspring. The course videos are effective and also entertaining. Communication with the instructor via the discussion board was convenient and the responses I got were prompt and complete.

by John Jevahirian, Commercial Sales Consultant, Michigan Solar Solutions 01/23/2020

This course is truly the comprehensive intro to PV class. Stop acting like you know PV because someone taught you how to size a net metering system! Take this class now and open your eyes!

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 George L 11/15/2019

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.
