August 2014: Using NATE to Your Advantage
As you fight through the dog days of summer, take some time to learn about the advantages of NATE. Below is information on how having NATE-certified technicians can improve a business. Beat the heat and the recertification rush with timely information in this issue of "The NATE Advantage."

In This Issue…

  • NATE Marketing Materials
  • Consumer Contractor Connection
  • NATE Testing Providers
  • Spanish Exams


NATE Marketing Materials for Contractors, Training, and Testing Partners
NATE LogoNATE provides NATE logos, flyers, buckslips, and website banners for contractors who employ NATE-certified technicians, and for Recognized Training Providers and Testing Organizations for promotion to customers.

Connect with Your Customers with the NATE Consumer Contractor Connection (C3) Program
C3 ProgramNATE's Consumer Contractor Connection (C3) program is the best way to let customers know you employ NATE-certified technicians. As a NATE C3 Contractor, you can list and advertise your business for free on the NATE Consumer Contractor Connection website.

To qualify, a contractor must have at least 50 percent of its eligible service and installation technicians NATE-certified. Contractors with 80 percent or more of employed technicians NATE-certified are listed as Quality Circle Contractors. If you're eligible, simply register your company information and the technicians' NATE ID numbers in order to be listed on the HVACRAdvice.com website.

For more information and to register, visit http://www.natex.org/C3

Reminder: HVACR Contractors May Be Eligible to Serve as NATE Testing Providers
A contractor may apply to become a NATE Testing Organization if it meets the criteria as described in the in the NATE Testing Organization and Proctor Guidelines and

  1. NATE Testing ProvidersHave at least 25 technicians;
  2. Have an individual outside of the service department and who does not have hiring, firing or supervisor responsibilities over the technicians who will act as the proctor for exams (i.e. an individual from the finance department);
  3. Agree to conduct at least one (1) test session per calendar year to remain an active testing organization.

Serving as a NATE testing provider can save you time and money. That is because proctoring NATE exams for your technicians means you can order the tests directly from NATE. It also means that as the weather or your business needs change, you can host testing at a time that works best for you and your staff.
