NATE Certification is achieved through a series of tests to certify professionals in one or more specialty areas. The tests, which total 21, are divided into installation, service, and senior technician paths with specialties ranging from Air Conditioning and Air Distribution to Oil Furnaces and Commercial Refrigeration. The knowledge-based exams are developed by industry experts and are the only tests supported by the HVAC/R industry.
NATE-certified professionals have a real-world knowledge of HVAC/R operations and are recognized by the industry—and more importantly consumers—as experts in the field. By gaining certification, technicians are better prepared for the workforce, remain in the industry longer, and are more productive than non-certified counterparts. NATE Certification also ensures that consumers will receive proper installation and service of all HVAC/R equipment the first time—saving time, energy and money, and resulting in better bottom line results.
According to NATE, nearly 90% of consumers prefer a certified technician to service their HVAC/R needs, a statistic which continues to encourage local HVAC contractors to seek and retain NATE-certified technicians to gain a competitive edge in the industry.
