ARLINGTON, Va. - NATE is set to introduce its first senior level certification test in a couple of months. The HVAC Efficiency Analyst test is the first NATE certification test with the requirement that those taking it must already hold two NATE service certifications. (The certifications may not be only A/C and HP, but they may be one of those plus any other current NATE certification.)

The certification patch color has been tentatively assigned green as the background color. The curriculum guides for the HVAC Efficiency Analyst test are available online at
