“Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them”. -Teddy Roosevelt Sean, In the above quote, I think you have the 2nd and 3rd kinds of greatness. Fate placed you at time where your teaching and solar skills are needed to help mankind and the planet (literarily). I am honored to have met you, and to have learned from your super set of solar skills. The Solar Bootcamp was phenomenal. Your solar books helped a lot (good job, well written). The training has the potential to be transformational for the country at a time when this change is critical. Your commitment to making sure we all can learn this science, strategically, make you a national treasure. Thank you.

I really value my education with Heatspring for many reasons. First, I get to learn about many things I never knew about. Another reason is that the teacher here really care about you and your education. Also, I have a lot of chances to make up work during the week. Tutoring is also available this program (free lessons) for those students who don’t understand something, Sean always encourage us to ASK questions he get back to you always! It was an excellence choice to start with Sean.

Seans program does an excellent job encompassing a great overall learning experience for people with various work/life exposure. You can walk away from this class speaking and calculating with confidence.

by Ethan Freund, Associate Project Development Engineer, Ameresco, Inc. 04/09/2022

Awesome class for knowledge fundamentals about solar installations. Key sections include PV string sizing, energy modeling calcs, and advanced energy modeling, shading losses, and system loss calcs!

by Jason Jacaruso, President, D/E/F Services Group, Ltd 03/06/2022

I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to take the exam and or learn the basics of solar and start getting into the field. Add the convenience or completing the course at your own pass with the timely responses from a "live" instructor to be able to get any and all questions answers is an excellent combination. Cant go wrong on this class - Jason

This course is really valuable, if you are going to start journey in solar industry.

by Quinn Keenan, Energy Efficiency Engineer, ICAST 09/01/2022

Sean White is a great teacher and did a wonderful job explaining the course material. Sean takes the time to respond to comments/questions every day. He truly takes the time to help his students, even though it is virtual. The practice exams and quizzes were also great.

by Frank Welte, Managing Member, The Welte Company llc 08/20/2022

I really enjoyed Sean's Solar PV Bootcamp. I learned a lot and look forward to passing my exam. I also look forward to signing up for more classes soon.

Take this class!

by Thomas Astolfi 04/27/2022

I love solar

by Leonard Slack, Sr. Electrical design engineer , Jacobs engineering group 04/02/2022

As an electrical PE, I found the course to be a useful, though inefficient, way to gain an understanding of basic solar PV design and troubleshooting. Judging from the sophistication of the material, It appears that the target population lacks basic math skills and struggles with abstract concepts. The tedious repetition and plodding pace made me wish for a 3X speed choice on the videos.

by Steven Bowling, Bowling Electric, Inc. 03/15/2022

Great job Sean!! Thank you very much

by Gajanan Borikar, Electrical Engineer, Motiva 06/16/2021

Learned a lot in short time. Very confident to pass the Associate Exam and have signed-up for the next 40 hrs PV installation class.

by James Masse 06/02/2021

Sean will be attentive and answer your questions quickly with great detail. This isn’t your average online course. Thanks to great info and an instructor that really cares about outcomes. Take this class if you’re really interested in learning more about the field of solar.

by Matthew Fenlon, Insulation Technician, Home Energy Inc 06/01/2021

An excellent introduction to the solar industry

by yash asthana 05/28/2021

I recommend this course to all the professionals and students who are in the field of solar energy. I passed my exam in the first go and all the credit goes to my mentor Sean White. The technical aspects which you learn in the course will really helps you to enhance your career in the field of solar energy because heat spring and Sean white has put lot a of hard work in designing the course. Looking forward to learn more from you guys for pv technical sales certification.

by Christopher Noble, Electrician, Blue Raven Solar 05/19/2021

I have been installing residential solar for the past two years. I'm the crew lead for my city. I thought I knew a lot about solar ( I knew enough to get the job passed and complete). After taking JUST the 18 hour portion of this, I realized I didn't!!! I'm feeling much more confident in my career just after the 18 hours. Deciding to take the NABCEP course was the best idea I've ever had. I took this course to better my self in the field I work in. I cant wait for the next 40 hours.

by Kevin White 05/18/2021

If you take this class, you will not regret. Getting my NABCEP will change my life!

by Stephen Gerken, Product Marketing Manager, Aurora Solar 05/18/2021

This is such a great course to prepare for the NABCEP PV Associate exam. I'm not sure I'd be able to pass without the help of Solar Sean!

by amir rosser 05/12/2021

A great course I learn a lot and will share my experience with others to take the course.

by Larry Suter 05/12/2021

I took another class from another organization and was just not properly prepared for the NABCEP exam like I am now. I am jacked!

by Saad Youssefi 05/12/2021

I recommend getting NABCEP certified and the best way of doing that is by taking this class first. There are many practice exams that are spot on. Also, the instructor's manner was fun and made the class enjoyable. I feel like I have a new friend. You can tell he puts a lot of time into his material.

by Patrick McGee 04/20/2021

Professor White went in-depth into the topics covered by the NABCEP Associate Exam and beyond. His online lectures are engaging and are filled with real-life examples that help connect technical concepts with practical utility. On top of that, his sense of humor elevated the material and kept me engaged in ways that other online courses struggle to do. After taking this course, I feel way more prepared for the NABCEP Associate Exam and entering the solar field.

by michael glenn 04/12/2021

I truly enjoyed all the information presented in the lessons

by Amy Voegtli 03/15/2021

Sean is great! He is very responsive and informative!

by Turner Harris, GATE Energy 03/14/2021

I've been employed in Oil & Gas for 10 years... currently making the pivot into renewables. This class was an excellent grounding in PV and has allowed me to better understand the not only the basics but also the PV market and current technologies (among other things). Highly recommended.

by Ray del Cojo 03/12/2021

I recommend this course to understand the PV world at the entry level and a bit beyond. Once you go over this course, the logic of how things work will be there, it is now just putting things to practice to become an expert.

by Geoffrey Ritter, Owner, Plants and Power llc 02/04/2021

Heatspring has given me the opportunity to develop technical skills on a national level for myself, my business and hopefully one day for the world. This has allowed me to follow my path and to learn specialized skills at my own pace. Thank you Geoffrey Ritter

by Michael Morse 01/26/2021

There are many options to gain PV knowledge at a variety of price points (his is in the middle), but it was important that I learn from a 'guru', who not only has the applied, real-world experienced background with technical expertise and knowledge, but I wanted to learn from someone who's passion REALLY IS PV... Sean's no dinosaur, but he's been in this industry before I was born ('83), but he's still in the top handful who are at the bleeding edge of its current state. It's his passion and it certainly comes through in the way he teaches. I'd say Sean is of the handful who not only write the books (literally) on the subject, but knows how to be a top-notch educator, and loves doing it too!

by Daniel Miranda 01/25/2021

Even if you are not planning on taking the exam I strongly recommend this course. It can be a refreshing class for us who already know a thing or two about electricity and a great source of new and clear information for this ever changing industry.

by Dane Larson, Solar Consultant, Wolf Track Energy 01/18/2021

Sean is a very knowledgeable and passionate person when it comes to PV systems, and it shows in his lessons. He clearly just wants all of the students to be prepared for the Associate Exam, and does everything in his power to make sure that the students are prepared.

by Nelson Torres 01/14/2021

Since I work for a Engineering firm dedicated the most on solar works this courses help me out to understand better all the topics regarding PV Systems.

by Scott Mora, Project Manager, Sunrun 01/14/2021

Until recently the solar industry has become a practical and necessary part of our economy. Before I took this course I knew a fair amount about solar design and installations. What makes this course so great is that whether you are in your first or tenth year in the solar industry, everything you need to know to work in solar is explained. My personal favorites were the history of photovoltaics and understanding interpretations of the electrical code. If I had known this course was going to be anything like the way it is, I would have signed up for it years ago. Awesome class! Thanks HeatSpring.

by Tobyn McCormick, Owner/installer, Tobyn Clark Electric 12/14/2020

I am an electrical contractor and I want my business to move towards specializing in PV. This course has been an excellent starting point towards making that happen

by Ajmal Abdul Salam, Tendering Engineer, Belectric Gulf Limited 12/13/2020

Dr. Sean White's Associate prep course is a must-do for serious exam goers, if they'd like to experience a fun way of preparing for the exam's content !

by Samuel Quinn, Solar Installer, Energy Independent Solutions 11/25/2020

If you are a solar installer or anyone looking to further increase your understanding of PV systems this course is where its at. Sean is an awesome instructor and breaks down complex material into easily understandable concepts .

by Thomas Meek 11/12/2020

As someone who has taught at the undergraduate and graduate level in an engineering discipline for over 30 years, I can say with certainty that Dr. White is an outstanding instructor. He will prepare you to take an pass the NABCEP PV ASSOCIATE EXAM.

by Laksh Muchhal 11/02/2020

"Multiply Ah by V to get battery capacity in Wh." One of the many tricks I learned from this course.

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!
