NABCEP Seeks Input from Small Wind Industry
July 24, 2012
If you work with small wind systems, the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) requests your assistance with a survey. A group of industry experts has been working with NABCEP to develop small wind entry-level learning objectives that describe the fundamental knowledge and skills required in a variety of job settings and roles. When finalized, the learning objectives will provide guidance for the development of small wind education and training programs, will be used to establish the test content outline for an entry-level small wind exam, and will help ensure that entry-level small wind practitioners have the requisite knowledge and skills for safe and effective practice. The objectives are ready to be reviewed and validated by members of the profession through an online survey. Small wind installers, site assessors, educators and trainers, manufacturers, distributors, those in sales and marketing, state program managers, and all others with expertise in small wind are invited to sign up to participate in the survey.
