ARLINGTON, Va. - North American Technician Excellence (NATE) recognized its Five Top Techs from across the country: Tom Bush, Norton, Va.; John Drye, West Lebanon, N.H.; Keith Kane, Omaha, Neb.; Bob Millen, Pratt, Kan.; and Thomas Neary, Rochester, N.Y. These technicians will be honored at Comfortech 2009 in Nashville, Tenn.

To be honored as a Top Tech, the technician must be a practicing technician in the field; must hold NATE’s senior certification, Efficiency Analyst; and must hold at least four other NATE certifications.

“All of the studying and preparation for the NATE exams helped me to clarify what I knew and learn more in areas where I was weak,” said Kane. “This helped me improve my ability to troubleshoot and repair equipment.” “On behalf of NATE, we congratulate these five technicians who have worked hard to continually master their HVACR skills and who have helped to raise the level of professionalism in the industry,” said Rex Boynton, president of NATE. “We encourage all technicians across the country to follow their lead and take steps to seek certification.”
