North American Technician Excellence is celebrating its 20th anniversary with its “#CelebrateWithNATE” campaign.

 In addition to social media engagement, the organization has created a special anniversary page,, where visitors can receive 20 percent off all training materials, apparel, hats, chevrons, patches, decals and accessories by using the promo code NATE20 online; a special commemorative issue of the NATE magazine; booth giveaways at industry events and more.

“For the past 20 years, NATE has been committed to elevating the industry by certifying the finest professionals in HVACR,” says John Lanier, NATE’s chief operating officer. “The key to NATE’s longevity is that it was created and supported by the entire HVACR industry for the benefit NATE certification provides throughout the value chain. We are thrilled to invite all of the industry to celebrate with NATE our progress over these two decades as we work to continue to support the industry for decades more to come.”

According to NATE officials, technicians who earned NATE certification are preferred among consumers, require fewer callbacks and generate more income for their employers. Today, nearly 34,000 technicians throughout North America hold at least one active NATE certification.
