Certification and Background Checks
NATE certification is required and also a Texas technician card. These are both good tools as they require a background check. Texas will not issue a card if there is a theft crime or a sex crime.

Certification Has Reduced Callbacks
All our techs are NATE-certified within six months of employment. I feel this has been very beneficial — recalls were reduced. All the techs are proud of their certs! Most all have been retested, no issues.
I don’t see any downside for the company.
I’m hoping consumer awareness will be raised in the near future, making NATE more valuable!
