NATE is the National Association of Technical Excellence. It is group established to set standards for a variety of technicians. They test the knowledge of individuals to establish their competence in various fields. If they pass the test, they are certified.

To you (the consumer) it simply means the technician knows what he/she should know to operate in that particular field; in your case heating and ventilation. This does not imply they are competent to actually perform the work. It only means they should know how to do it.

Hope this helps,
