Zep Solar Inc. (“Zep Solar”), developer of the first comprehensive platform for PV system installation, this week announced it has registered three new PV continuing education courses with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners’ (NABCEP). NABCEP certified PV installers now have an option to receive continuing education units (CEUs) for training on Zep System mounting and grounding products.
NABCEP, a volunteer board of renewable energy stakeholders, provides a set of national standards by which PV installers can distinguish themselves from their competition with a voluntary certification of their skills and experience. NABCEP certified PV installers can now earn the continuing education units needed to maintain their certifications by learning about new products from Zep Solar that place them on the cutting edge of technology.
“Zep Solar’s installation system offers installers significant improvements over conventional systems and allows them to achieve greater levels of efficiency, safety and aesthetics,” said Zep Solar CEO, Mike Miskovsky.
We’re proud that our training curriculum meets NABCEP standards so that our users can add to their credentials as they stay on the cutting edge of technology.
The curriculum includes a two-hour “Zep System: Design and Installation” track as well as four-hour intermediate and six-hour advanced track options. Participants can register online at https://training.zepsolar.com/ .
