Dec. 12, 2008: NATE Announces Grand Prize Winner of NATE Bowl Competition

ARLINGTON, Va. - North American Technician Excellence (NATE) has announced that its NATE Bowl competition grand-prize winner of a trip for two to Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Fla., is BW Service Experts of Mishawaka, Ind.

“We are very excited to have won the NATE Bowl competition,” said Doug Gabbard, general manager of BW Service Experts. “We currently have 19 NATE-certified technicians here at BW Services Experts. We know how important the NATE program is - our technicians work very hard to stay up to date with the latest technologies and provide the best, most efficient solutions for our customers.”

NATE said the competition, which kicked off in February, was created to be a fun and rewarding way to build interest in getting more technicians certified and recertified in 2008. Teams earned points for every NATE-certified technician they have on staff. Additional points were earned each time a technician was certified (or recertified) or earned additional NATE credentials. All points were accrued during the NATE Bowl season, which lasted through October 2008. Prizes also were awarded monthly in respective “divisions,” which were based on company size.

“The NATE Bowl was a success in helping to encourage certification and increase professionalism across the HVACR industry,” said Rex Boynton, president of NATE. “For contractors, a larger number of NATE-certified technicians can mean fewer callbacks, less time spent on a job, and improved efficiency and productivity. This competition just added a little extra incentive.”
