All of our technicians are Certified by Nate.

North American Technician Excellence, Inc. (NATE) is the leading certification program for technicians in the heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC/R) industry and is the only test supported by the entire industry.

NATE exams reflect a consensus opinion of what technicians need to know to effectively service and install today's sophisticated HVAC systems.


As an independent, non-profit national organization supported by a broad-based coalition of industry leaders, NATE represents a shared commitment to improving the HVAC/R industry through voluntary testing and certification. NATE supporters include contractors, distributors, education and training providers, manufacturers, technicians, utilities, and their respective trade associations.

Testing organizations using NATE-approved proctors administer certification tests nationwide, all year long.

To date in 2002, 66% of candidates have passed the new NATE ACE test of their choice. This is because more candidates are studying and reviewing the material before taking the test. Scores of candidates who have taken a refresher course or formal training classes are generally 7-13% higher than those who have not.

Technicians who pass the NATE test have reviewed, studied, and are familiar with the KATEs.
