ImagineSolar provided not only a pathway to the NABCEP Certification Exam, but also in-depth installation experience on cutting-edge solar technology including AC-coupled bimodal systems, micro-inverters, dual-axis trackers, and cylindrical CIGS modules as well as traditional solar technology. –Jack Payne Owner, B.J. Electric, and member of the JATC Board of Trustees, Austin, Texas
By far the most interesting part of the class were the hands on exercises. It was great to learn how to set up and read a solar pathfinder. Especially since this was one of the hardest parts of the course. Studying the behaviors of the modules and how their power output varies from just the short time we were outside with them was also very helpful. The best part of all was hooking up the complete system, from the stands to the inverter. –Pablo Sedillo, Albuquerque, NM
ImagineSolar prepared me for the NABCEP installer and technical sales tests. I hold both certificates and highly recommend ImagineSolar. –Fred Brimhall, solar entrepreneur, Abundant Solar, Austin, TX
This was a truly awesome workshop. Michael was very detailed. He made complex topics simple to understand. I recommend this workshop to everyone interested in the solar industry. –Syed “Ed” Khundmiri, Houston, Texas
