What is NATE?

North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is a large non-profit certification organization in the nation that’s dedicated to air conditioning, heating, refrigeration, and ventilation technicians. Being a non-profit, this organization is owned, operated, developed and supported by the entire HVAC industry.

Since its inception in 1997, NATE has provided certified technicians who have proved to be the best in the industry. Some technicians who choose to pursue certification from NATE do so voluntarily, simply because they need to showcase their expertise in the industry.

Process for getting NATE- Certification

Technicians who earn NATE certification must pass a knowledge-based exam that identifies their real-world, working knowledge of HVAC systems. Developed and supported by industry professionals, the test and subsequent certifications were created to bring professionalism and high-quality standards to the industry, as well as make it easier for consumers to identify quality HVAC service professionals. This means in choosing a NATE certified technician, you’re ensuring the best installation or air conditioning service available, better system performance and efficiency, and enhanced system lifespan.

NATE certification is no easy task. Because of their rigorous nature, a minimum of one-year of work experience is recommended before attempting NATE certification tests. Tests include not only core knowledge ranging from basic construction, electrical, and scientific knowledge, but also include tool and safety essentials, as well as testing on how to achieve desired interior home comfort conditions.
