Why Pursue the MREA PV Site Assessment Endorsement?
When hiring new employees, solar companies place high value on candidates with related education and work experience. To help new professionals gain experience and set themselves apart from other job seekers, the MREA has developed an endorsement program to recognize students that achieve minimum competency and work experience requirements. The endorsement is meant to be placed on a resume as a reference. The MREA will maintain records of all endorsed professionals and if an employer is interested, they can contact us to verify the achievement.
What is the PV Site Assessment Endorsement?
To achieve the Site Assessment Endorsement, students must:
- Have earned the MREA PV Site Assessment Certificate (retired), or
- Have completed PV 101, PV 201, passed the PV Site Assessment Exam, and have a minimum of 100 hours of related work experience verified by an employer
