Sean is a great instructor and very knowledgeable. He breaks down each questions to help you understand the basics of PV.

by Laura Miller, Energy Professional 03/15/2019

If you, like me, get bored with conventional online trainings, let me suggest this training... which borders on unorthodox.

by Arlin Y 02/25/2019

by Hiram Pendergrass, Instructor, AJEATT 02/17/2019

The content is well laid out, with thorough explanations and easy access to the instructor. Plus it can be done at home, on lunch break, or while taking the train to work. Super convenient! Highly recommended!

Having taught online courses in chemistry for the local community college, I can say that this course is well designed. You can always pause the lecture when needed and the discussion posts and quizzes are very helpful.

by Patrick Monteith, Installer, Okanagan Solar 12/06/2018

Sean White purveyed the course material in a creative and easy to absorb way. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to continue their education in solar, or start from scratch and jump head first into the world of renewable energy.

by Jeremy Warren, Installation, Sales, and Digital Technology, Grassroots Solar 09/07/2018

The transition from basic, general information into industry-specific tools almost happens without you noticing. Dr. Sean White is an incredibly active and responsive online instructor and supports you through the course at whatever speed fits your needs.

I feel much more confident in my understanding of solar principles after completing Sean White's PV Installer Boot Camp.

by Sean Kelly Long, Owner, Cutting Edge Contracting Inc. 05/02/2018

Better yet, I already referred two guys that I know to take the boot camp and installer classes through here!

by Andrew Ramos, Sr. Engineer, Honeywell 04/24/2018

The course helped to connect the dots and fill in blanks of my understanding.

by Seth Kielas, Project Manager, Loverde Builders 04/16/2018

This is a great course packed full of information in a user friendly format. You get your money's worth with all of the course information plus additional bonus information to further you studies. Having the audio files of the videos available for reviewing while commuting is a great tool.

by Zach Schwartz, YellowLite 03/15/2018

Very great instructor and course - I came away from a speed-taking of the course (2.5 weeks) going from 0 knowledge about PV to nearly scoring a 100 on a practice level PV exam.

by Robert Baghdasarian, General Manager, LA Power Center Corporation 02/20/2018

Easy to follow, informative and simple.

by Robert Grant, CEO, Morningstar Investments LLC 02/15/2018

Thorough, convenient, easily understood, extremely informative and worthwhile learning tool: Well worth the cost of the course and I'll definitely recommend to friends and co-workers.

by Nathan Bourassa, Heavy Equipment Mechanic, Polar Field Services 02/07/2018

I really enjoyed the NABCEP Associate course. It is well thought out with clear goals and objectives. Dr. White is a great teacher and makes every effort to understand and answer your questions. I plan on taking many more courses through Heatspring. It is a worthwhile investment in my future.

by Rob Clemons, General Manager, Monarch Solar LLC 01/08/2018

I would recommend this course to anyone that needs to learn more about the various processes of the solar industry.

by Sean Buckley, Owner, Harvest Sun Solar 01/06/2018

A comprehensive course taught by a true wizard of the solar industry… He will make sure that you find understanding and competence with the curriculum, even if you get just foolishly hung up on something simple… Can't lose here, this is not to just pass a test, works great for that, but truly you can go from that to serving your customers and yourself with confidence and competence.

by James Freasier, President/CEO, F&W Electrical 12/26/2017

I really liked Dr. White's approach to teaching the different and difficult technical issues encounter in the design, installation and maintenance on a PV system.

by Lucas Titolo, Director of Engineering, Solar Landscape 11/28/2017

This course was a great preparation for the Associate Exam, and made the entire process super easy and stress-free.

Well done Sean White and Heat Spring!! Thanks for a well thought out informative class, I feel 100% confident that I will pass my Nabcep Associate's exam with ease after completing this course!!

by Eric Lichtenheld, Owner, Intelligent Solutions LLC 10/21/2017

I took the NABCEP PV Installer exam this morning and did not feel that it was as difficult as I remembered the NABCEP entry level exam to be. But I did not have the benefit of Sean's teaching back then. No matter what my score on the exam today, I am sure that it will be at least 30 points higher for having taken this course! Thanks Sean!

by Jonah Whitten, Solar Ki 10/13/2017

If your new to the industry this course gives you the fundamentals of PV as a foundation of knowledge to build on.

by Carola Voelker, Director of Projects, Centroplan USA LLC 10/09/2017

The course was very helpful for me. It freshed up the rather dry and sometimes boring/ difficult topics of the NEC.

by Dan Ruiz, foreman, black platinum solar&electric 09/24/2017

this is a really good course tho the videos are alittle long i do have a short attention span tho so it could just be me.

by Yeon Soo Chung, Design Engineer, Nishikawa Cooper LLC 09/01/2017

I appreciated this course. Next step is to pass the exam, and a bigger challenge will be find a job as a PV installer and gain installation experience (I live in a state where solar has not taken off, so maybe I will need to move out of state). This course gives me basic knowledge as I start this job-searching process post-exam, and I hope it will give me a good foundation to start my hands-on experience as an installer. The instructor is very punctual and helpful in his responses to discussion board questions. His lectures cover a variety of topics as he tries to give you a big-picture view of the solar energy industry in this entry level course. The way he repeats important concepts throughout the course as reminders is also very helpful.
