HVAC technicians will be able to earn their North American Technician Excellence certification at next month’s Refrigeration Service Engineers Society conference.

Attendees will be able to attend a four-hour training course before taking the exam Oct. 23. The 76th annual RSES conference and trade show takes place Oct. 23-26 at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh.

“NATE is pleased to partner with RSES to offer NATE testing during its annual conference,” said North American Technician Excellence Chief Operating Officer John Lanier. “Through its products and services, RSES has helped thousands of technicians successfully pursue NATE certification. We hope technicians from far and wide take advantage of the opportunity to take the NATE exam this while attending the RSES conference and HVACR technology expo.”

The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society’s executive vice president, Mark Lowry, said he was happy to host the program test.

“RSES is delighted NATE continues its prominent role in our annual conference,” he said. “NATE certification and RSES education are a natural fit and we’re delighted to be able to offer technicians both opportunities at once. There’s no better place for HVACR professionals to expand their knowledge, and earn the credentials to prove it.”

The society is waiving the one-day conference registration fee for those taking the exam. Details are available at www.rses.org/conference.aspx. For more information on the exam offered at the conference, go to this website.
