    Question what is NATE

    So, many people here have gotten into a habit of hating NATE for no other reason than the incessant forcing of it down their throats.
    I don't know if forced down the throat is a proper term, but I have been involved in discussions. Never has it been implied that Certification will eliminate all the problems with our industry. It has been stated that it will make it much better due to some states have absolutely no licensing at all. Here is a list of manufacturers who have, or who are working on a Dealer Incentive Program for the Dealers who employ a certain percentage of NATE Certified techs.

    American Standard
    Bryant
    Carrier
    Lennox
    Maytag
    Nordyne
    Rheem
    Rudd
    Trane
    York

    Some are making it mandatory to have a certain percentage of NATE Certified techs to be a dealer of their equipment. As far as Bryant and Carrier, their requirement will be: 100% of installations must be signed off by a NATE Certified Technician.

    Dealer Programs

    Dealer Programs are not always what they appear to be . I work for a Prefered American Standard Dealer program that we get rated on. We do the best job on our installs as possible and if the unit quits due to breaker,or customer not changing filter and freezing up.The customer fills out a sheet that is a 5 point for each question and he is upset because of what he thought was our fault.Then sends it in we suffer. Some just don't understand how the question's work and leave it blank and we get a bad report.

    Nate certification is not a dealer program it is a technition offered test for a rating of knowledge and skill in our industry.
