NATE Establishes Ground Source Heat Pump Certification

North American Technician Excellence (NATE) and the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) announced an agreement that enables the current IGSHPA Accredited Installer Exam to be administered and processed by NATE. As a result, all technicians who successfully complete the IGSHPA/NATE exam will be "NATE Certified/IGSHPA Accredited Installers." This agreement aims to hold heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) practitioners to a higher standard and further promotes industry excellence. All IGSHPA proctors that conduct the IGSHPA Accredited Installer Workshop are required to complete the NATE proctor application form to encourage consistency and tight administration. NATE has established IGSHPA as a NATE testing organization. You must be a proctor with that Testing Organization to offer the exam. Please call NATE for more information, Toll Free: 1-877-420-6283
