2016 NABCEP Continuing Education Conference an Overwhelming Success

Filed under: News — Kathryn Casey @ 10:37 am

San Diego, CA (April 11, 2016): This year’s Continuing Education Conference, held from April 3-April 6, resulted in another completely sold out show. There were over 500 solar industry professionals in attendance at Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego, CA. The conference was well attended by 57 diverse exhibitors; some of which were able to offer training sessions to count towards recertification credits. We were also able to offer 16 panel session discussions featuring top industry experts as guest speakers.

NABCEP would like to thank its generous sponsors and all of the exhibitors for their contributions that make this event a success year after year. Your support is a tremendous vote of confidence for NABCEP’s mission and allows us to hold this special event.

NABCEP is looking forward to seeing everyone next year for the 6th Annual Continuing Education Conference. Be sure to keep an eye out for the location announcement!
