NATE provides a framework of professional skills and competencies that demonstrate a real working knowledge of HVACR systems.
The ability to successfully complete a NATE exam validates a technician’s mastery in installation, service and a variety of specialty areas such as:
Air Conditioning, Air Distribution, Heat Pumps, Gas Heating, Hydronics Commercial Refrigeration and other subjects. This clearly demonstrates their readiness to enter the workforce and add value for their future employers.
Students that work toward or complete NATE certifications are better prepared to enter the workforce as skilled, valuable workers.
Our crosswalk provides an overview of the NATE skills and competencies that are related to each model of our training equipment. We want to empower administrators, instructors and decision-makers to choose solutions for their programs that will lead to the best outcome for their students.
This provides a way to help our customers relate the hands-on experience and learning opportunities created with iConnect Training equipment to industry-recognized credentials that will help students prepare for their future and enter the workforce.
The column labeled "# of Teachable NATE Knowledge Areas" shows the number of Knowledge Areas of Technician Expertise that each training unit can be used to teach, providing instructors with insight into how each training unit can elevate a student's readiness.
