No More Testing Windows! The PVIP Certification Exam is Now Offered Continuously Throughout the Year
NABCEP is doing away with testing windows and will be offering the PV Installation Professional Certification Exam continuously throughout the year as a computer-based test (CBT). NABCEP will be reviewing and accepting PVIP applications on a rolling basis, and you will have two years from the date your application is accepted to take the PVIP exam. In most cases, a candidate’s application will be reviewed within a week. The paper-and-pencil (P&P) version of the PVIP exam will still be available twice per year.
You Can Take Your NEC Codebook With You to the PV Installation Professional Computer-Based Exam
NABCEP candidates will be allowed to use their own National Electric Code (NEC) Codebooks during the CBT exam. NEC Codebooks will be checked by exam proctors to make sure they conform to NABCEP’s new NEC Codebook Requirements. Codebooks from any year may be used. 

NABCEP and its testing vendor, Castle Worldwide, Inc., also updated the PDF version of the 2017 NEC Codebook, which will be available to candidates taking the exam who don’t have access to their own copy.

Anyone taking the PVIP as a paper-and-pencil (P&P) exam will still have the 2017 NEC Codebook provided to them during the exam, so they will not be able to bring their own copy.
