Recently updated for the latest NABCEP exam

The NABCEP PV Installation Professional certification exam, often referred to as the NABCEP Installer Certification or PVIP Certification, is notoriously difficult, and most people who take it do not pass. This practice questions is a great first step in preparing to pass the exam.

A copy of the National Electrical CodeĀ® (NEC) is provided to everyone who takes the actual exam. Individuals taking this practice exam should have a copy of the 2017 NEC for reference. A link is provided in the course with some options to get a free copy of the 2017 NEC.

This is a free self-serve course with a 70-question practice exam included. You can take the practice exam multiple times, but there is no instructor support for this course and no other study materials. If you're looking for full-service exam preparation course with instructor support, we recommend Sean White's 40-Hour NABCEP Advanced PV Certification Training and CEUs course.

The free NABCEP Practice Exam was key for my passing the real test on the first try. Most of the free practice exams online are outdated, incorrect, or both! I put my trust in Heatspring's and it did not let me down.
