The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) launched its newest program, the NABCEP Photovoltaic (PV) Entry Level Certificate of Knowledge. As its name suggests, the certificate attests to the holder's basic knowledge of solar PV applications and an entry-level knowledge of installation procedures. This offers a different certification option to NABCEP's more stringent PV installer certification programs.

"As the market grows for photovoltaics, students holding this industry-sponsored Entry Level Certificate could find that their job opportunities are enhanced." - Don Loweburg, Chair of the NABCEP Board of Directors.
