    No idea, just passed my first round. Just did it for me, place I work could care less, sell those uv lights and systems. that's it.

    I guess that the senior test is the last after all the other ones?

    you have to have two certs and then you can take it. it is relating to efficient install and service practices.

    Good Luck. Let us know how it went. Even know it's open book, I heard it's a tough test. Here's a link to what's on it:

    I had gas, oil, heatpump, a/c, air distribution and they didnt get me a single thing other than the pride to say i did it, so I choose not to renew. Good luck on the test.

    It's really taken a long time for NATE to gain traction but it's really starting to take hold. Many utilities and manufacturer's are getting on board with recommendations and as the meaning spreads, customers will start to take notice I believe. Getting continuing ed credits is also getting easier. Many more classes you can attend at both the manufacturers level and others are now approved for NATE credits.
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    I just did it to see if I could. Check. Anyway, knowledge never hurt anything. Took the ASVAB in high school to get out of class. Missed 1 question. Guess I am good at taking tests, if I could parlay that into making $$$$ I would buy my wife that new car she wants.......
