Due to concerns about the COVID-19 emergency and the need to reduce our exposure to viral threats, NABCEP decided to offer all Board Certification and Associate level exams through live online proctoring (LOP). Live online proctoring is an internet-based form of assessment, which allows you to take NABCEP exams from any location on your personal computer.
In the face of the global pandemic and increased risks associated with disease transmission, NABCEP is determined to meet the needs of current and aspiring renewable energy professionals by reducing the opportunity for disease transmission. Live online proctoring provides teachers, schools, and students with the tools needed to access industry-validated certifications and credentials while preserving the integrity of NABCEP’s exams and its coveted Board Certifications in the renewable energy industry.
Live online proctoring of NABCEP’s exams reduces the costs associated with traveling to testing sites, which makes NABCEP’s exams more accessible to economically and geographically disadvantaged individuals, while also decreasing our collective carbon footprint. NABCEP Board Certified Professionals enjoy:
- Increased marketability
- Validation of knowledge
- Enhanced reputation, credibility, & consumer confidence
- Digital badges that easily link to social media, email signatures, and websites
