NABCEP is the standard.

In addition to the regular week-long class, Ambassador Energy has added a Friday-only schedule for contractors who have trouble taking an entire week from their businesses. "We think this may help to accommodate students' busy schedules," said NABCEP certified trainer, Catherine Kelso. "We will cover the same material and just spread it out one day a week, instead of five consecutive days."

NABCEP is the standard for quality in the solar industry today,” said Kelly Smith, president of Ambassador Energy, Inc. “We encourage solar integrators to rise to the NABCEP standard, thus protecting our industry from solar knuckleheads and yahoos, who taint the credibility of the industry as a whole. As an ISPQ-accredited training facility, we believe we have a responsibility to raise the bar in this industry which has grown so fast. Time to reel it in and get all of the solar integrators trained and certified!”

Ambassador Energy’s ‘Intro to Solar PV’ course is designed to give students every opportunity to learn the basics of solar photovoltaic technology and pass the NABCEP Entry Level [EL] test. Students are encouraged to take the test immediately, as AE statistics have proven it increases the odds of their passing.

The upcoming schedule for Ambassador Energy’s 32-hour ‘Intro to Solar PV’ course and NABCEP EL test includes five consecutive Fridays, beginning March 2, 2012 and a full week February 13-17th, 2012. The classes and tests are offered at Ambassador Energy’s headquarters and training facility in Murrieta, CA. Students may register online.

Class tuition includes test, textbook [$100 value] and the opportunity to build an actual solar photovoltaic system during class. The following subjects are addressed:

  • How PV Works
  • What Affects Solar Output
  • PV System Components
  • Electrical and Solar Terminology
  • Solar Site Evaluation
  • Shade Analysis
  • PV System Design

In addition to the NABCEP courses for Entry Level, PV Installer and PV Technical Sales, Ambassador Energy College continues to offer one-, two- and three-day training classes on related subjects, ranging from ‘Solar for Electricians’ to ‘Become a Solar Referral Agent’.”
