Registration to this conference, which will be held March 30–April 1, 2012 in Malta, NY, has been limited to NABCEP certificants. It will be the largest single gathering of NABCEP certified installers and stakeholders that has occurred to date. Over 200 professionals from twenty-seven states and Ontario, CA have registered to attend this inaugural conference.
Don Warfield, NABCEP chairperson says; “We are very excited to bring together this lineup of presenters and provide our certificants with this opportunity to network and engage in professional development. We anticipate a very successful event and are grateful for the support of NYSERDA and Hudson Valley Community College, along with our other sponsors and presenters.”
This NABCEP Continuing Education Conference is designed to provide NABCEP certified installers and technical sales professionals with an opportunity to attend high-quality courses that are recognized for continuing education credits. These credits can be applied toward installer recertification, and show that an installer has a commitment to ongoing training and education.
