NATE Certification recognizes your knowledge and dedication to excellence while increasing your job demand and earning potential. That is because technicians who have earned NATE certification are preferred among consumers and deliver higher billable efficiency, reduced warranty returns, and fewer callbacks.You must earn 16 CEH over the 2-year certification period in order to maintain NATE certification.
