At what level would you place a field experienced and a certified electrician from a different country to be able to qualify any solar installtion systems.

Hello Mike,

Our advice would be to take the NABCEP PV Associate Training. It will provide all the guidelines and procedures for solar installation in the United States. As you already have experience installation, this course is also appropriate since installations are not covered.

Thank you,

I am very interested in this program but I will not be able to attend on Saturday due to my religious beliefs. Could arrangements be made to compensate for the loss of the day?
