October 19, 2011 (Dallas, TX) – The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) released today the preliminary version of the Resource Guide for PV Installer Certification at the Solar Power International Conference in Dallas, TX. The document follows the PV Installer Job Task Analysis and provides study and material for candidates who are preparing for the NABCEP exam. It was prepared for NABCEP by two of the industry’s leading authors and trainers: Bill Brooks, PE and Jim Dunlop, PE.
Ezra Auerbach, executive director of NABCEP says, “We are very excited about the depth and quality of the new Resource Guide. While it is clearly not intended to be the definitive or only resource that candidates use to prepare for the exam, we feel that it will prove to be an excellent starting point. Bill and Jim have done an outstanding job.”
The document is marked “preliminary” because another section of secondary references and recommended reading is being added. Mr. Auerbach continues, “We released the Guide in its preliminary form because we felt that, even without the additional resources section, it is a very valuable tool for candidates. I thank the Resource Guide Committee for their huge contribution of compiling references and suggested readings and look forward to adding the results of their efforts to the Guide at the earliest opportunity.”
