Houston, TX, August 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- ONTILITY is launching its semi-yearly NABCEP Certified PV Exam Prep Course in seven cities nationwide, starting August 27-28 in St. Louis, MO. The two-day prep class will be held in seven cities in August and early September: St. Louis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Houston, Baltimore, Denver and New York, to meet the needs of solar professionals who are registered for the September 22, 2012 North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Solar PV Installer Certification Exam.
As more utility companies and government agencies require that solar systems be installed by a NABCEP Certified Installer to qualify for incentives, NABCEP PV Installer certification is gaining ground as the industry standard. ONTILITY, in keeping with its commitment to solar industry growth, wants to help as many qualified solar professionals as possible to become NABCEP certified.
ONTILITY's intensive two-day NABCEP Exam Preparation Course will lead qualified professional solar installers through the difficult task of passing the NABCEP Solar PV Installer Certification Exam. Tim Coats, ONTILITY Senior Solar Consultant, Instructor, Design Engineer, and NABCEP Certified PV and Thermal Installer, puts it this way: "When I took the Solar PV Installer Exam I knew it was probably going to be one of the harder open-book tests that I had taken. I was right. I am so glad that I was very well prepared. NABCEP certification will soon become the standard for installing solar (thermal and PV) in the US. It may soon be required to install solar in your area."
Tim continues, "I walked out of the exam room thinking that I was not as ready as I had thought. I know that I had studied every resource NABCEP recommended, but the exam looked very little like what I had studied. However, I did pass the exam. I know the reason I passed is because I had spent so much time learning how to solve the problem of passing the test. What I mean is that I practiced the very skill that is the main key to passing the test – problem solving. In the end, I think that is the crux of what NABCEP is looking for, solar installers who can identify and solve PV installation challenges and complex design problems."
ONTILITY designed its AS-210 NABCEP Certified PV Installer Exam Prep class to prepare students to think through complex problems quickly, find the information they need efficiently and draw sound conclusions. The class consists of two days of design challenges, installation problems and code issues, intense problem solving, lively discussion, and instruction from one of ONTILITY’s highly qualified, professional solar instructors, all of whom are NABCEP Certified PV Installers.
