Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts in Kitchener always tells you about how our service techs are NATE-certified, and while it sounds comforting, what does it really mean?
NATE stands 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 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 service heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration equipment without being certified by NATE.
It’s important to Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts that our experts are NATE-certified to make sure we are sending the most qualified and trained technicians into your home. To make sure professionals meet these benchmarks, the NATE-certification tests validate real-world working knowledge of HVAC and refrigeration systems for technicians. The assessments are knowledge-based exams that assess the technician’s knowledge of these criteria.
