Anyone taken the NATE Tests.....

Much of the state and federal efficiency upgrade funding in Illinois is only available to those holding certain certificates...NATE and BPI mainly.  As a Steam specialist there are no certificates covering steam, so there is no certification availlable to work on steam....unless you hold another certificate and do steam on the side.  I was wondering what the CORE and GAS Hydronics tests look like.

    Almost everyone here has NATE certificates. Only 1 has taken & passed the hydronics test. We don't do much hydronics so haven't had the boys take it, this guy wanted to so we had him. I didn't take the core, got grandfathered. We had 1 tech recently take it, not the sharpest tool here, did fine on it. You should be in great shape.

    They're

    not that bad, I took three of them in one sitting at OESP. Core, oil hydronic and oil furnace or whatever they called it and managed to pass all of them. I studied profusely at the Waterfire event the evening before: http://waterfire.org/schedule/2012-2/ thanks to my friends at Taco.
