PV Associate Goes International

In October 2017, NABCEP began offering the Photovoltaic (PV) Associate exam outside of North America. As in North America, the purpose of taking the NABCEP PV Associate exam is to demonstrate an individual’s knowledge of PV systems and earn a credential from the most well-respected renewable energy certification company in the U.S. and Canada.

The major function of the NABCEP PV Associate Program is identifying individuals who have obtained the knowledge of the basic principles relating to the application, installation, operation, and economics of PV systems.  The NABCEP PV Associate Program is intended for anyone who is currently working in, or seeking employment in the PV industry.
