NATE Certification Training Has Arrived

Due to popular demand, Everblue Training Institute has added HVAC certification training to its expansive course offerings.


The highly specialized nature of the HVAC industry has necessitated the development of NATE Certification to meet technician needs. As the nation’s leader in sustainability education and green jobs training, Everblue has developed a NATE Certification course, adhering to customer demand.

“It is my pleasure to announce the unveiling of what will be Everblue’s next most popular course: NATE Certification training,” said Teal Brown, NATE program manager. “We have long received requests from professionals in the heating and air conditioning industry to provide HVAC training, so we’re excited to now have this training available.”

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, which is a non-profit certification organization for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration technicians. When individuals achieve NATE Certification, they demonstrate an unparalleled level of knowledge and expertise in working with HVACR systems.

HVAC technicians seek this training to gain technical information about their craft while also increasing their marketability in the industry. Because heating and air conditioning units affect homeowner health and safety, consumers prefer to hire technicians with industry certifications. NATE Certification enables technicians to gain the trust and confidence of customers and potential employers.

“Everblue’s audience of residential and construction-industry professionals has, historically, driven us to provide training courses that will further an individual’s career and help them gain new business,” Brown said. “At the end of the day, our emphasis is always on tackling the climate and environmental challenges facing individuals today, so if we can help HVAC technicians become even better at providing comfort and energy efficiency to fellow residents, then it’s a win-win situation.”

To become a NATE Certified technician, one must pass a core exam and a specialty exam. The core exam covers the candidate’s general knowledge, construction knowledge, safety skills, and communication skills, while the specialty certification covers the candidate’s knowledge of the installation, service maintenance, and/or repair of HVACR systems.

Everblue will be offering two versions of its HVAC training. Individuals must enroll in the core training as a prerequisite. After that, they have the option to take air-to-air heat pump specialty certification training or a combination of air-to-air heat pump and gas heating training. Everblue’s HVAC training can last up to three days and includes the exam.
