Teays Valley Service Experts in Hurricane always talks about how our service techs are NATE-certified, and while it sounds reassuring, what does it truly mean?
NATE is an abbreviation for North American Technician Excellence and, according to their website, is the nation’s largest certification organization for HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) and refrigeration technicians. The organization is owned, operated, developed, and supported by the entire HVAC and refrigeration industry but not all people in the industry are required to be NATE-certified. The certification is discretionary and technicians can work in the heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration industry without being certified by NATE.
It’s important to Teays Valley Service Experts that our technicians are NATE-certified to ensure we are sending the most qualified and trained technicians into your home. To make sure experts meet these benchmarks, the NATE-certification exams validate real-world working knowledge of HVACR systems for technicians. The exams are knowledge-based exams that assess the technician’s knowledge of these subjects.
Since Teays Valley Service Experts focuses on the HVAC side of NATE-certification and not refrigeration, there are only certain areas pertinent to our technicians. NATE test candidates may earn installation and/or service certification in one or more of the skill areas listed below:
- Air Conditioning
