Are you an HVAC technician in the North East Washington region looking to enhance your skills and advance your career? Elevate Your HVAC Career! Thermal-King, Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with the North East Washington region as an authorized source for NATE Certification and Training center. This partnership aims to support the growth of HVAC technicians by offering guidance and instruction in both the Certified HVAC Professional (CHP-5) pathway and the Traditional Path.

CHP-5 Certification Pathway: A New Approach to Certification

The CHP-5 certification pathway is designed to simplify the certification process while enhancing technicians’ preparation for the exams. Unlike the traditional format, which includes a 50-question core exam and a 100-question specialty exam, the CHP-5 pathway comprises five 30-question exams. Each exam focuses on one of five distinct subject domains: HVAC Fundamentals, Electrical and Controls, Comfort and Airflow, Installation, and Service.

One of the key advantages of the CHP-5 pathway is its flexibility. Technicians can choose the order in which they tackle the exams and have up to six months between each exam for dedicated study and preparation. Additionally, the exams are available in both traditional in-person formats and remote live online proctoring, allowing technicians to take the exam from their homes or workplaces at their convenience.

For those who prefer the traditional Core and Specialty exam pathway, rest assured that it remains a viable option. The introduction of the CHP-5 pathway does not eliminate the traditional route. Technicians achieving NATE certification through the CHP-5 pathway will need to fulfill recertification requirements every two years to maintain their certification status.

NATE Training Academy: Your Online Study Resource

We are excited to introduce the NATE Training Academy, developed in partnership with Interplay Learning. This online platform provides technicians with the opportunity to train for NATE certification exams at their own pace. The comprehensive courses, available on-demand, feature interactive and immersive elements such as “field-like” 3D and VR simulations, videos, and knowledge checks.

Official NATE Study Guides: Your Comprehensive Study Companion

NATE has curated a study guide specifically tailored to aid technicians in preparing for the CHP-5 exams. This paperback guide is enriched with graphics and practice questions at the end of each chapter. The guide is available for purchase in the NATE online store.

Traditional NATE Certification Pathway: Time-Tested Excellence

Technicians who opt for the traditional NATE certification pathway will follow a time-tested route that involves two essential exams – the 50-question NATE Core exam and a 100-question Specialty exam. These exams assess a candidate’s knowledge in various aspects of HVACR, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the field.
