The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is pleased to release revised eligibility criteria for their Small Wind Installer Certification. The revised criteria will become effective immediately. Candidates wishing to apply for the September 2011 administration of the Small Wind Installer Certification Exam will use the revised criteria, which allows for a wider range of wind practitioners to take the exam and achieve the certification.

"The basic principal in changing the criteria is inclusion. The current standards are aimed at installers who have experience in all aspects of small wind installations."
