IBEW Endorses UL’s PV Installer Certification


UL and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) have entered into an agreement to begin offering UL's Photovoltaic Installer Certification to IBEW members and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

The collaboration is expected to provide members access to a nationally recognized UL credential, allow them to broaden their skills in an increasingly competitive labor market, and improve market access to licensed, qualified electricians for safer PV installations.

UL's PV Installer Certification, established in 2010, was designed to meet and exceed existing industry requirements through a working cooperation with stakeholders, non-governmental organizations and professional associations. Making the certification exam available to more than 675,000 IBEW members and 119 local NECA chapters helps improve the safety and performance of PV systems through a more qualified workforce, UL and IBEW explain.
