New NATE BadgeCert E-Certification
Beginning this year, NATE has partnered with BadgeCert to offer digital e-certification badges for those technicians certifying and recertifying in 2014 and 2015. With a unique personalized URL for each technician’s certification, technicians and contractors can print certificates and a wallet card for free anytime. Now you can proudly share NATE certifications electronically with others via email and social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and on your company website. You can also share the unique URL link with customers, manufacturers, utilities, and others, whenever you need to prove current NATE certification. For more information, contact NATE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NATE Contractor Resources
If your technicians are certified, let your potential customers know! NATE offers access to free logos, online and print marketing materials at http://www.natex.org/site/398/Contractors/Overview. Your business must employ at least one currently NATE-certified technician to use the NATE logo.
Enhanced Contractor Locator at HVACRAdvice.com
Did you know the hvacradvice.com website gets over 5,000 visits per month? To offer more options to consumers, NATE now has three categories of listings — for contractors with 25-49 percent of their technicians NATE-certified, for contractors with 50-74 percent of their technicians’ certified, and for those with 75-100 percent of their technicians’ certified.
