The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) in cooperation with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has established an ECSES scheme for the training and certification of sustainable energy skills. The ECSES scheme is currently focusing on the training and certification technicians of simple off-grid PV systems technicians, but gradually be developed to cover technicians of more complex off-grid and grid-connected PV systems as well as other RE and EE professionals.

Please note: The NABCEP 2018 and 2019 PV Installation Professional Exams are based on the 2017 NEC. Beginning January 1, 2019, NABCEP will discontinue offering the Certification Exams in Paper-&-Pencil (P&P) format. Accepted Candidates for the NABCEP PV Installation Professional, PV Design Specialist, PV Installer Specialist and PV Commissioning & Maintenance Specialist Certification Exams may choose a time and location to take their Exam by computer through our Computer-Based Testing (CBT) network, Castle Worldwide, Inc.

All Candidates must submit scheduling requests to Castle at least four (4) business days prior to the date the Candidate wishes to take or reschedule their exam.
