NABCEP recently announced that our Photovoltaic Installation Professional (PVIP) Certification exam is now available internationally. The international exam is the same as the one offered in the United States and Canada, using a computerized format, and it is available in English in over 370 cities in 97 countries across the globe. The international expansion of the PVIP Certification exam positions NABCEP as the global standard for renewable energy industry certifications.
“Global deployment of residential, C&I, and utility-scale PV systems is growing at an incredible rate,” said Shawn O’Brien, NABCEP’s Executive Director. “From the Middle East to Asia to our own rooftops, solar power is quickly becoming a dominant source of energy. The importance of having uniform standards of practice within the industry as it grows comes into keener focus in the age of globalization, and NABCEP will continue to update and maintain uniform standards of practice as NABCEP’s Board Certifications become the global standard for professionals in the renewable energy industry.”
NABCEP’s PV Installation Professional Certification exam will be offered in countries like China, India, Jordan, and many others. For a full list of test sites, please click here. International test-takers will be required to pay an additional $75 exam fee.
