You will receive a US Solar Institute Certificate of Completion with each level of the program completed.

This is a highly sought after and respected Diploma in the solar market. Read more about our program here.

USSI is a registered NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) PV Exam Provider, and after completing our PV-201 course you are eligible to take the NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam.

You do not need experience in solar to take our courses. Most students start in our PV 201: Introduction to PV Design & Installation course. Our courses will cover the basic principles of how solar energy is produced and take you through advanced design and installation concepts and teach you everything you need to be successful in the solar industry.

Can I take classes online?
