The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors of Iowa (PHCC-IA) has been approved as a testing organization for the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) exam. It will begin offering test sessions this fall.

According to a recent PHCC-IA newsletter, “NATE certification is designed for installation and service technicians who work on residential and light commercial equipment and systems. There are no experience or educational requirements, but NATE recommends that installation technicians have at least one year of field experience and service technicians have at least two years of field experience.”

PHCC-IA will also offer the test in conjunction with its annual conference in February 2003.
