NABCEP Seeks Input from Small Wind Industry

Clifton Park, NY, June 29, 2012 – The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) invites professionals in the small wind industry to provide input on the development of NABCEP’s Small Wind Entry Level Program. Small wind installers, site assessors, educators and trainers, manufacturers, distributors, sales and marketing professionals, state program managers, and all others with expertise in small wind are invited to sign up to participate in an industry validation survey for the program. 

Participants in the online survey will be reviewing and evaluating a set of Small Wind Entry Level Learning Objectives. These learning objectives are designed to describe the fundamental knowledge and skills required for entry level small wind practice in a variety of job settings and roles. When finalized, they will provide guidance for the development of small wind education and training programs, will be used to establish the test content outline for an entry level small wind exam, and will help ensure that entry level small wind practitioners have the requisite knowledge and skills for safe and effective practice. For purposes of this program, “Small Wind” has been defined as systems rated at 100 kw or less.
