The Delaware Technical Community College renewable energy solar program was certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners.

The NABCEP supports and works with renewable energy and energy efficiency industries, professionals and stakeholders to develop and implement quality credentialing and certification programs for practitioners. It raises industry standards and promotes consumer confidence by offering entry level knowledge assessment, professional certification and company accreditation programs to renewable energy professionals throughout North America.

Students enrolled in the college’s renewable energy solar program learn solar photovoltaic installation and design. They study and work with grid-tied and stand-alone photovoltaic systems, learning to evaluate and recommend energy solutions with efficiency and lower environmental impact with the added benefit of energy cost savings.

For students who graduate from the program, the NABCEP certification means they are eligible to sit for the NABCEP PV entry-level exam. Completion of the exam demonstrates fundamental understanding of the principles of solar photovoltaic installation, application and design.

In addition to the program certification, Terry Campus Energy Technologies Department Chair Jennifer Clemons completed required training to become an NABCEP-certified instructor.
