If I could I would trade my NATE's for RSES certs anytime. I do resi work and this is what employers look for. You need an 80 to pass RSES I believe and a 70 for NATE if I'm not mistaken also. I plan on taking a RSES cert test sometime in the future for my own benefit. I think it is a shame what you experienced I think it would be hard to find that today though. I also know some of the tests are harder today than what they were then, in particular the gas heat imo. I know of a guy who shouldn't be allowed near a heatpump who is certified. He went to a school that basically taught the test it seems. I also know a guy who is the top heatpump tech in my company who can't pass the heatpump test. And he is a good tech lol.
