Jobs in the solar power industry are currently increasing at unprecedented rates. Position yourself to be a part of the Clean Energy Workforce by learning the basic technology for solar photovoltaics energy systems. Central Piedmont Community College’s Center for Sustainability invites you to become NABCEP certified at the entry level in solar photovoltaics knowledge. This course equips participants to successfully pass the NABCEP Entry Level Exam for solar photovoltaics installation.

Intended for individuals who understand the basics of electricity and electric generation, this class will focus on detailed functionality of photovoltaic (PV) system components needed for systems that are supplemental, off-grid and grid connected systems. Students will be able to design and size these systems, and see what is involved with interconnection to the utility.

This course does not include the cost for taking the NABCEP Associate Exam for solar photovoltaic systems.  The course will include hands on demonstrations of equipment for assessing and designing solar PV systems as well as in-class work. The NABCEP Associate Exam will be given at the end of the course. For information about the Exam, please click here.
