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 Miguel Garza, Lead Engineer, Galt Energy 12/01/2019

Don't hesitate to take this course, I really learned a lot. Very very recommended.

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.

The course has been very helpful.

I am an Electrical Engineer, and have been using the code book for quite a while, yet this is the first time I have clearly understood some of the unclear parts of the code book.

by Tim Grandjean, Energy & Sustainability Technologist, Shift Energy Group 09/30/2019

Sean is an extremely detail oriented and experienced PV professional with a natural aptitude for teaching. Any time I had questions, we was extremely prompt in his responses which shows his dedication to seeing you make it through. Between these traits and his syntactic course delivery method, this course has been essential in sharpening me up prior to writing my NABCEP PVIP exam. Thanks Sean!

This is a great preparation for solar professional work and the NABCEP exam. You will enjoy Sean's presentation and sense of humor. You cover a lot in a short amount of time.

by Brandon Herman, Director of Field Services, Renu Energy Solutions 07/24/2019

Even though I work in the solar industry daily and focus on this material on a regular basis, I have been hesitant, and maybe a little intimidated to take the PVIP exam. This course has both exposed me to the concepts and applications that I don't regularly see in the field, and has given me a more robust understanding of theory, code, and design. It has given me more confidence in my daily work and compelled me to expand my knowledge base for further personal development.

by Gene Townsend, Project Manager, Inman Solar 03/28/2019

I've not taken the exam yet, so I can't say how well the material is represented on the exam. But the material in the textbook and online course was thoroughly covered in a way that I feel I understand it all now.

by Chris Connelly, Owner/President, Solar Bear Energy 03/25/2019

Sean White does an excellent job of breaking down the NEC code and making it understandable. You will come out of the course with a wealth of new knowledge and with a confidence to take on the NABCEP exam!

What I thought i knew about solar was nothing, I've learned so much that I believe i'm now prepared for the industry and now won't make those common mistakes made in the field.

by Siddharth Temburni, Director of Engineering , Summit Energy Group 12/09/2018

I highly recommend heat spring course by Dr. Sean White for PV advanced training. Please watch every second of the course videos and keep in touch with Dr. White. I feel lucky to have him as my instructor for this course.

Sean has a very thorough and well organized self pace course for the NABCEP professional exam. He is very responsive to any question you may have.

by David Garganese, Owner, Response Electrical Services 11/11/2018

I recommend taking this course to anyone looking to prepare for the NABCEP or expand their PV understanding. Sean's knowledge and experience is vast and evident throughout this course. It was a privilege to learn from one of the best!

I definitely recommend the course. It is worth the $!

by Daniel Horstkamp, Solar Engineer, Energy Select LLC 09/27/2018

I would highly recommend this advanced PV course for anyone serious about the work they perform on a day-to-day basis. The knowledge and tips of the trade are hard to find - with much controversy - yet this course does a great job summarizing and helping you think.

by Jay Richardson Jr., Owner, Jiles Solar, LLC 07/24/2018

This course has helped me on my journey through the NEC. Dr. White is always available to answer questions through his discussion board. Solid class. I'll be recommending it to all of my fellow solar associates.

This course great

by Archit Patnaik, Assistant Project Manager, Pure Power Engineering, inc 03/30/2018

The course has helped me profusely in understanding many concepts of PV system and NEC codes which had been obfuscating me for months. I like the way Dr. Sean White simplifies difficult NEC codes and make them easy to understand. The fundamentals behind various codes and their application have been explained beautifully throughout the course, which will make the base strong for any engineer who aspires to work in solar industry.

by Justin Hiner, Foreman, Synergy Solar 03/09/2018

This course is awesome, Shawn really knows his stuff. The amount of information is priceless and to learn from someone that as been in the industry as long as he has is a privilege.

by Drew Biddle, Senior Project Manager, Independence Solar 02/19/2018

This course is a great way to expand your PV knowledge and study for the NABCEP exam.

by Kerry Lipp, Solar Installer / Electrician, Lipp Electric & Solar 01/17/2018

Highly recommended. Some of my installer coworkers took a course somewhere else and did not get half of the information that I got here. Very comprehensive and well presented. Sean White knows solar and the NEC.

This course was really helpful in both understanding the solar industry as a whole, and preparing for material on the NABCEP PV Installation exam. It was instrumental to my passing of the NABCEP. Shaun was highly responsive in answering questions. I highly recommend taking this course to bolster your solar knowledge.

by Andrew Dobbins, Senior Design Engineer, SepiSolar, Inc. 08/04/2017

This class is a great way to not only teach you how to design code-compliant systems, but how to be organized and truly know the code; you'll know exactly where each topic is covered in the NEC.

by Brandon Bower, Project Manager, Yellowlite 08/04/2017

For an online course, I was super impressed with how much information was presented in a digestible manner. Sean is great at explaining the complex wording of NEC code in an understandable way.

You need time and concentration to attend this course properly. Do not make yourself false expectations about getting easily all the knowledge. You must study more than you think.
