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 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.

by Jonathan Golebiewski 04/23/2022

Sean did a great job and I was able to gain a ton of new information.

by Talon Montoya, Account Manager, Longhorn Solar 04/20/2022

I work around other solar professionals and whenever they would see or hear the content I was learning or I would share my thoughts experience, they would literally verbalize their admiration and jealousy that they did not get to take this course as their NABCEP prep

by Timothy J Zinniel, President/CEO, Zinniel Electric Co. 03/31/2022

I would recommend this course to snyone who wants a jump-start in their PV career!

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 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!

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 Dan Henderson, Commercial Solar Consultant, Michigan Solar Solutions 01/02/2023

This course put together by Sean White and Heatspring is invaluable. I took the course and went from being a "new guy" at work to being viewed as an expert. If you are serious about the PV industry - education is the path to success. Cheers to many sunny days ahead!

Great course, very thorough.

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 Zahi Baroudi, Construction Advisor, GIZ 11/08/2022

Perfect course to acquire a solid base and technical practicality on PV systems. Great instructor with high skills in explanation.

Sean really made the calculations part of the course very easy to understand.

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 Mohamed Samura, Field Metering Engineer, Energicity dba Power Leone 09/13/2022

Before doing this course, I did not much about work safety but having gone through this course I saw the emphasis on safety and the need to apply it in every work environment. So going forward safety is one thing I will consider in every workspace

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 Mohammed Mohammed, Solar & Storage Systems Engineer 08/21/2022

Sean's ability to communicate with everyone in all of his courses amazes me

by Jarrod Starr, Solar Business Development Manager, Third Sun Kokosing Solar 08/10/2022

Sean's an excellent communicator on all things solar! Whether you're looking to get a foot hold in the industry or advance your career, I highly recommend taking one of Sean's Heatspring courses! I feel more confident in my knowledge and the ability to more effectively communicate the basics of solar PV!

by Matt Votoupal 07/13/2022

Instructor was fun and kind. Always messaging back on discussion board posts makes it feel more like a conversation and less of a task

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 Ed A 04/18/2022

by Christopher Knight, Deputy Operations Manager, Synaptic Solar & Dynamic SLR 04/14/2022

I thoroughly enjoyed the content of this course and believe I have expanded my knowledge base in the field of PV. Sean was very informative and interactive in the discussion boards. How he can find the time to answer questions I know he's fielded a million times in a personalized tone is beyond me and highly appreciated.

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 Ryon Hayman, President, OnSite Energy, Inc. 06/02/2021

I would recommend this course to anyone in the industry trying to understand how PV works.

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 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 Richard Phillips, Project Manager, Conundrum Technologies 11/22/2020

I passed my test the first time because of Sean's classes and books
