    Solar PV Certification

    Is there anyone out there who can give some info about solar pv installer certification in SA? In the USA they have NABCEP which does this for people who have some solar pv experience. I'm a trade tested and qualified electrician from Zim and currently working in solar pv design and installation and I've attended some two day training courses in the industry. How does one become a certified solar pv installer certified from system design all the way to commissioning?

    The NABCEP PV installer certification is a voluntary certification that provides a set of national standards by which PV installers with skills and experience can distinguish themselves from their competition. Certification provides a measure of protection to the public by giving them a credential for judging the competency of practitioners. It is not intended to prevent qualified individuals from installing PV systems or to replace state licensure requirements.

    The target candidate for NABCEP certification is the person responsible for the system installation including contractor, lead installer, foreman, supervisor, or journeyman.

    The NABCEP PV Installer certification has been developed in accordance with the best practices of the certification field. NABCEP is a member of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (I.C.E.) and has endeavored to follow the requirements of ISO/IEC Standard 17024: General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification Systems of Persons.
