Bob Brown Service Experts in Tempe always writes about how our technicians are NATE-certified, and while it sounds reassuring, what does it actually mean?
NATE is an abbreviation for North American Technician Excellence and, as stated on their website, is the nation’s largest certification organization for HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) and refrigeration technicians. The organization was developed nearly 20 years ago and is supported by the entire HVAC and refrigeration industry but not everyone in the industry is required to be NATE-certified. The certification is optional and technicians can provide heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration services without being NATE-certified.
It’s important to Bob Brown Service Experts that our technicians are NATE-certified to ensure we are sending the most qualified and skilled technicians into your home. To make sure experts meet these benchmarks, the NATE-certification assessments validate real-world working knowledge of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems for technicians. The exams are knowledge-based exams that assess the technician’s knowledge of these subjects.
Since Bob Brown Service Experts focuses on the HVAC side of NATE-certification and not refrigeration, there are only specific areas pertinent to our technicians. NATE exam candidates may earn installation and/or service certification in one or more of the talent areas listed below:
