Brandon Johnson

Entry-level PV Installer

Breaking into the industry

“Unemployment gave me the opportunity to reevaluate my goals, and I realized that I wanted to get into the renewable energy industry to do my part to help the planet. The problem was that I had zero experience or training. I took a NABCEP registered course and then passed my NABCEP PV Associate exam, which helped me break into the industry and land a new job!” 

Barbara Lane

Experienced PV System Designer

Set yourself apart

“While I was recently looking for a job as a PV system designer, I needed a way to set myself apart from the competition to find a great job. I earned my NABCEP Board Certification, and that stood out to employers more than anything else on my resume. I highly recommend getting NABCEP Board Certified to anyone looking for a better job.”

Marie Jones

Marketing Manager

Attract more customers

“I had been NABCEP Board Certified for a few years, but I recently added the NABCEP logo and digital badge to my company’s website and my email signature. The response from customers looking to invest in PV has been amazing! I wish I had used my NABCEP Board Certification to attract customers sooner. Thanks, NABCEP!”
