North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Objectives and Task Analysis for a Professional Small Wind Energy System Installer

This document presents an in-depth task analysis for practitioners who do wind site assessments and specify, install and maintain wind energy systems and equipment. The purpose of this task analysis is to define a general set of knowledge, skills and abilities typically required for small wind system practitioners, and to help ensure safety, quality and consumer acceptance of small wind installations throughout the U.S. This task analysis helps define the requirements for the assessment and credentialing of practitioners. It also helps establish the requirements for accrediting training and educational programs and in developing curricula. These tasks, or a modified version thereof, may be used by states or organizations that wish to develop requirements for education, training, testing, certification or otherwise qualify existing or new workers to install small wind energy systems.
