Master Specialist hands On Certifications
Certification is an aid in identifying the scope and level of a technician's competency. HVAC Excellence offers progressive levels of certification that identify knowledge and
skill levels of individual’s through each phase of their career.
Master Specialist Hands On Certifications is the highest credential conferred upon a field technician.
Why Hands On
A written exam indicates whether a technician has retained the knowledge to be competent, but not whether they are competent.
Master Specialists are required to go beyond a written test and demonstrate their skill and workmanship. The analogy would be knowing which solder to use and then demonstrating
that you can solder tubing that is structurally sound and leak free.
The Master Specialist program requires a technician to demonstrate retained knowledge and prove they can apply that knowledge through skill verification.
Master Specialist certification identifies technicians who possess the highest levels of competency and challenges others to improve. The program assists employers in hiring competent
technicians; manufacturers in warranty cost reductions; and consumers with confidence in a technician's competency. In addition, it allows HVAC Excellence to analyze current deficiencies
in the technical workforce, on a regional basis, and to use that information to provide educational programs with data necessary to develop ongoing training for field technicians.
A technician must have a minimum of 3 years of verifiable field experience and achieve a passing score on the related HVAC Excellence written professional level technician exam
Technicians who successfully attains a Master Specialist Certification will receive a framed wall certificate and patch.
