NATE Certification: Why It Matters When You Hire A Contractor

If you’re considering hiring an HVAC contractor, make sure the contractor’s technicians are properly certified. Although contractors usually hire trained, knowledgeable and professional people, there is an elite group of people, less than 1 percent of all technicians, who achieve the highest standard of industry training and receive NATE certification. A North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certification-awarded technician is respected and sought after industry- and state-wide. Even the NATE instructional staff receives rigorous training, while meeting program teaching standards and passing rigorous testing.

The training concept, curriculum, and testing methods of the NATE certification educational program are held to a unique principle: The GOODS Principle.

“G-O-O-D-S” stands for:

  • Governed: all industry HVAC and plumbing parties participate in the structure and operation of the educational curriculum, as well as the training and certification processes.
  • Owned: using a non-profit charter, all participating industry parties own the program.
  • Operated: to maintain uniform agreement throughout the program, all parties participate in operational responsibilities.
  • Developed: all parties participate in continual evolution of the program’s curriculum to increase the knowledge and skill levels of all student-technicians.
  • Supported: financial support for the program is provided by all parties, contributing to the stability of the program’s continuation of future industry curriculum developments.

When deciding on a contractor that emphasizes NATE certification for its technicians, you can be sure your HVAC job will be performed to your highest expectations and satisfaction, whether you’re requesting a cooling system or furnace modernization, annual system inspection or minor repair.
