What is NATE?
NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence. NATE is the nation’s largest non-profit certification organization for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians. NATE offers certification tests for installation and/or service in one or more specialty areas.
How does one become NATE certified?
Anyone interested in obtaining NATE certification may take the tests by contacting a NATE-approved testing organization and paying the appropriate testing fees. NATE’s certification tests are comprehensive and consist of real-time scenarios in air conditioning and refrigeration. The technician must have enough experience to understand various systems and rectify the heating and cooling complications. The classes to prepare for NATE Certification focus on the full spectrum from basic to the latest HVAC technologies employed in the industry.
Why is a NATE certification important?
If you need work performed on your furnace or your air conditioner is broken, you want to hire a professional who will get the job done right the first time. Choosing a company that is NATE certified ensures you are going to work with technicians who are well trained in fixing any HVAC device. The certification test is not easy, so completing the program means each technician will leave with enhanced skill levels.
