Hi Farnaz, thanks for your question. The candidates will receive an Everblue Certificate of Completion at the end of the PV301 Solar Sales training. Please note that this certificate is not the same as a certification or a license; it merely represents that the student finished our course. That said, the learning objectives are aligned with the NABCEP PV Technical Sales Certification. Provided that you have met the education and work experience eligibility requirements identified in the NABCEP Certification Handbook, you could go on to take the NABCEP PV Technical Sales exam. The exam and certification process is separate from our training course. I'll send you an additional email outlining this information. Thanks, Lesley@Everblue

Hi Mehrdad,

Thanks for your message. Since you mentioned that you’ll be shifting from a career in automotive sales and finance management, I might suggest that you start your solar journey with our PV101 Solar Fundamentals course. This is the course that we recommend to anyone new to solar. This is where you’ll get a keen understanding of how solar energy works.

Contrary to popular belief, solar sales isn’t just about learning basic sales skills. You really have to have a strong understanding of how solar energy works, including assessing a potential site, designing the system for optimum energy efficiency, etc. Therefore, our PV301 Solar Sales course is actually an advanced course.

I’m happy to offer you a 10% discount if you want to register for both courses. Just let me know, and I’ll get that order started for you.

Thanks again for your message! - Lesley@Everblue

Hi and thank you for your question! While we do not currently have NYC on the solar training schedule, we do have two other solutions for you. Our next closest live training is in Boston, with dates scheduled for April 27-28. We also offer a 100% online version, so you can participate from the comfort of your home! We've included a few sample videos of the training across the site, if you'd like to get a sense of what the online training would look like.

If you're looking to start a business in solar, you would want to take our suite of solar courses to ensure that you have all the information that you need to be successful. That includes PV101, PV201, PV301, and OSHA 10 Construction Safety. We've bundled all of our solar courses into one package that offers a reduced rate instead of registering for each class individually. You can learn more about this package here: When you're ready to register, you can do so online or by calling us at 877-741-9382. Thanks again for your question!
