Why NATE certification?

Graduate to the industry standard of HVAC technician excellence and get better visibility for your program.

The NATE program focuses on certification and is designed to strengthen existing training and education programs instead of competing with them. NATE works with you to set knowledge standards.

Besides getting your program in front of potential students, NATE certification can help validate your training/education. Just compare aggregate data on your students to the national average and you'll know if your programs help technicians better prepare to meet the industry's highest standards!

How proficient are NATE certified technicians? Very.

We won't sugar-coat it - the NATE test is challenging. NATE certified only those technicians who achieve mastery of an industry-approved level of knowledge. The tests are developed by industry leaders and reflect a consensus opinion of what the average technician should know to effectively install and service HVAC systems.

NATE certification is designed for Installation and Service technicians who work on residential and light commercial equipment and systems: Air Conditioning, Air Distribution, Gas Heating, Heat Pumps, and Oil Heating.

There are no experience or educational requirements, but NATE recommends that Installation technicians have at least one year of field experience and Service technicians have at least two years' field experience. Those with less should have taken and passed ICE - the Industry Competency Exam. The more education and training a technician has received, the more likely he or she is to pass the exam of their choice.
