Fat Spaniel Technologies Inc., a provider of monitoring and reporting services for distributed renewable energy systems, says the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners has approved the company's installer training program for continuing education credits and re-certification.
The instructor-led, hands-on courses provide system installers with critical knowledge about installing National Electrical Code (NEC)-compliant monitoring packages for solar electric systems, the company says.
‘This is the type of accreditation that will help raise the bar in our industry and will be increasingly important as more installers begin to offer monitoring as a standard component of every solar system,’ says Chris Beekhuis, president and chief technology officer of Fat Spaniel.
The training courses are designed to help installers develop an integrated understanding of the distributed monitoring system as a whole, skills to integrate monitoring from the beginning to the end of the installation process, and knowledge to properly and efficiently install NEC-compliant monitoring packages.
Offered every three weeks at the company's headquarters in San Jose, Calif., as well as on-site at partner locations, more information about the courses can be found at http://fatspanieltraining.webex.com.
