October 4, 2011 (Clifton Park, NY) – The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) released today a revised version of the Job Task Analysis (JTA) for their PV Installer Certification. Ezra Auerbach, Executive Director of NABCEP, says; “The revisions that were released for publication today address many of the questions and concerns that have been voiced since the JTA was published in the summer of 2010.” He continues, “There are very few changes of major substance; the job of the installer largely remains the same. The revision addresses the focus of the document and clarifies that the installer’s duties include review and adaption of the design of the system and that the installer is expected to start with a set of plans, materials, and manuals.”
The revisions were developed through a collaborative process that involved over twenty leading subject matter experts that serve on the PV Technical Committee. Don Warfield, chairperson of NABCEP, says; “I want to thank the volunteer members of the PV Technical Committee for the huge amount of effort that they have invested in this JTA. These detailed documents are the foundation of our credentialing programs. Their work is central to our ability to deliver meaningful and market-appropriate certifications.”
The JTA is available here.
