ARLINGTON, Va. - North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is giving all HVACR contractors the opportunity to “get in the game” by competing in its inaugural NATE Bowl contest, “a fun, inclusive, and rewarding way to build interest in getting more technicians certified and recertified in 2008.”

“NATE Bowl is our way of creating some good-natured competition among contractors and to provide a wide array of exciting rewards for what most of them are already doing - improving the professionalism of the HVACR industry,” said Rex Boynton, president of NATE.

NATE Bowl, which officially kicks off Feb. 1, is designed to get more technicians NATE-certified, or recertified, if needed, to get the best HVACR team on the field in 2008. According to NATE, this can mean fewer callbacks, less time per job, and greater efficiency and productivity for contractors.

A wide variety of prizes will be awarded monthly in respective divisions that are based on the size of the contractor. In late 2008, the grand prize, an all-expense-paid trip for two to Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Fla., will be awarded.

“This contest is open to all HVACR contractors of any size, nationwide, without regard to their technicians’ NATE-certification status,” noted Boynton. “They simply need to go to our Website for more information and to register.”
