NABCEP Announces Release of Practice Exams

Online Practice Exams are Now Available for the PV Installation Professional Certification and PV Entry Level Exams

Clifton Park, NY (March 27, 2015) - The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is pleased to announced the release of practice exams for the PV Installation Professional Certification and PV Entry Level Exams.


By offering practice exams, those preparing for the exam have the opportunity to become comfortable with the format of certification and entry level exams. It also allows test-takers to become more comfortable with the timing of the exam and knowing how long to spend on a given question. The practice exams were written using the same specifications as the full exam.

The practice exams are available for online purchase on NABCEP's website. From the time of initial access, test-takers will have a 48-hour window to complete the exam. They consist of 35 sample questions similar in type to those found on the actual examination. Those who purchase the practice exams will have twice the amount of time as they would during the official examination. Once the exam is submitted, a full score report will be immediately available. This report will inform the test-taker of how many questions they answered correctly in each area of the practice exam.

The online format of the practice exam will be especially beneficial for the PV Entry Level candidates, as they will be able to experience an online-computerized testing environment. For many of the PV Entry Level Providers, this is how that exam is administered.

NABCEP is excited to be able to make this option available for the PV Installation Professional and PV Entry Level exam.
