NABCEP just announced that effective immediately it is accepting applications to sit for the first administration of the Small Wind Installer Certification exam. This is NABCEP’s first certification for installers of a non-solar technology, and will target practitioners who specify, install and maintain wind energy systems and equipment. The first exam will be administered on September 11, 2010 with applications due on July 9, 2010. For this new credential, a small wind energy system is defined as a grid connected or off-grid system with or without batteries rated at 100 kW or less.
The eligibility requirements to sit for this certification exam can be found in NABCEP’s new all-inclusive Candidate Information Handbook under Section 5. Applications are open and the online application is accessible from the NABCEP homepage www.NABCEP.org.
NABCEP staff can be contacted by phone and email with any questions or you can speak with them at the ASES National Conference (Booth #212) and at the Small Wind Conference and Midwest Renewable Energy Conference in June.
