    I’m looking for information on study guide and test for PV Electrical Design with NABCEP all I can find is entry level,Is there a requirement
    to take entry level installation first? I’ve installed and designed PV for 5yrs. I’d like to skip this step if possible.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for checking out Green Credential.

    Here is a link for the Certified PV Installer Candidate Handbook:

    I don’t believe you have to do the entry level first, the handbook states applicants need 2 years of experience and 2 systems per year installed, sounds like you have that so you just need to do the due diligence when applying with NABCEP. The professional test is given twice a year, 60 questions multiple choice.

    Is this study guide for the NABCEP PV entry level examination? and not the installer certification?
    I am taking a 1 week intensive course in Michigan in March, already bought James Dunlops Photovoltaic Systems textbook and would like further tips/hints/guides in order to pass the test. As I have no prior knowledge in the PV field/nor physics or the like (Antropology/Sociology) major, I would like the most help I can get.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for checking out green credential, hopefully by march Green Credential will have out the NABCEP PV Entry Level study guide, different from the free PV Installer Certification Study Guide on’s website. Our study guide is geared toward entry level candidates and will help you understand the concepts of solar design and installation.

    Thanks Jordan.

    When in March will you have it by?
    When you mean by “geared toward entry level candidates and will help you understand the concepts of solar design and installation”, does this include entry level candidates for the PV entry COK exam?

  • admin February 24, 2010, 7:52 pm

    Early March, it is for the Entry Level and covers all the learning objectives set out by NABCEP for the PV Entry Level COK.
