If you didn’t get to NABCEP’s Continuing Education conference in St. Charles, MO this year, you might have missed the best event yet to grace the solar industry. 2023 NABCEP was one for the books – more attendees, vendors, sessions, and fun than ever before and just enough time to take it all in.

In episode 19 of our Solar Tech Talk, Jason Burnett and Aaron Bingham, our Solar Tech Talk hosts, sit down with Shawn O’Brian, the President & CEO of NABCEP, to discuss their favorite takeaways from this year’s show.

Check out the recap from the show on YouTube or wherever you get your podcasts:

What is most exciting?

This year, NABCEP launched their Learning Management System (LMS). The platform will host multiple digitally recorded trainings for virtual learning and accreditation. Look for many of the sessions from the conference recorded there.

Why do we Love NABCEP?
