The NABCEP Solar Heating Entry Level Program is designed for those individuals wanting to get into the solar field; achievement of the NABCEP Entry Level Exam is a way for candidates to demonstrate that they have achieved a basic knowledge of the fundamental principles of the application, design, installation and operation of Solar Thermal Systems. 

The knowledge demonstrated by passing this test does not replace the knowledge, skills or abilities of the electrical, plumbing or other construction trades, or those of other professions or degree programs that require considerably more academic and/or practical experience.

Individuals passing the NABCEP Entry Level Exam should not be confused with NABCEP Certified Solar Heating Installers.

Students achieving this industry-sponsored Entry Level Exam may find that their employment opportunities are enhanced by starting the job with an understanding of the basic terms and operational aspects of a Solar Thermal system. However, completing coursework and passing the exam does not qualify an individual to install Solar Thermal systems.
