Also on Monday, RSES will proctor one session of North American Technician Excellence (NATE) technician certification testing from 1 to 5 pm. Separate registration is required.
Technicians who have earned NATE certification are preferred among consumers, require fewer callbacks and generate more income for their employers, thus earning higher wages on average and demonstrating greater value to employers than non-certified technicians.
