NABCEP Entry Level ExamNABCEP Entry Level Exam
2 hours, Non-Credit

The Workforce Development Institute (WDI) of Hudson Valley Community College is a registered provider of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners’ (NABCEP) PV Entry Level Exam for those who successfully complete an approved PV-Entry Level course.

Passing the exam and earning the NABCEP Entry Level Certificate is a way for candidates to demonstrate that they have achieved a basic knowledge of the fundamental principles of the application, design, installation and operation of grid-tied and stand-alone PV Systems.

By passing this industry-sponsored Entry Level Exam, individuals may find that their employment opportunities in the solar energy field are enhanced, especially as the market for solar power grows, since they will be starting the job with an understanding of the basic terms and operational aspects of a PV system.

The NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam should not be confused with the NABCEP PV Installers Exam. Passing the NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam does not qualify individuals as NABCEP-Certified PV Installers, who are required to pass a much more rigorous examination and to demonstrate the capability to supervise complete PV system installations. For more information, please visit NABCEP.org.

This course can be used to complete the WDI Photovoltaic Systems Certificate.

PLEASE NOTE: A government issued ID is required to be admitted into the exam.

Prerequisite: Proof of Completion of NABCEP-approved PV-Entry Level course.
