May/June 2017

NABCEP has been hard at work developing two new certification options for PV System Inspector (PVSI) and Solar Heating System Inspector (SHSI) Certifications.

NABCEP PV and Solar Heating System Inspector certifications are primarily intended for individuals performing system inspections for Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ's), utilities, incentive programs, investors and others performing quality assurance of photovoltaic (PV) and solar heating system quality assurance and code compliance. NABCEP System Inspectors will be tested in the following areas: Inspecting Electrical Components and Systems; Inspecting Energy Storage Components and Systems; Inspecting Mechanical/Structural Components and Systems; and Documentation for the System Inspection. 

More information about these new certifications will be available soon so keep checking our website and your email for updates!

NABCEP: Registered Trademark
Here at NABCEP, we believe in raising industry standards and promoting consumer confidence within the PV and Solar Heating industries. It's that belief that led to NABCEP being known as the "gold standard" for PV and Solar Heating Installation and PV Technical Sales Certifications.  Similarly, we feel that our NABCEP Certified Professionals and Associates exemplify this gold standard as they work hard to attain the skills and knowledge required to both earn and maintain their NABCEP credentials. 

In order to protect the value of our Certified Professionals' certificates, NABCEP applied for and obtained a registered trademark for its logo with the U.S. Patent Office. A registered trademark means that no other business or organization can use NABCEP's logo, which helps to maintain the high value of NABCEP's programs and the reputation of our professionals. Look for the little ® in the right corner of our logo from now on! 

For more details on NABCEP trademark ownership, please review our Trademark and Mark Use Policy here.
