Q. Does the American Contractors "No Pass, No Pay Guarantee" apply to this course?


No. Since we pay North American Technician Excellence for your initial test, any additional exams will need to be paid for by you. However, in the event you do not pass you may attend additional preparation classes for up to 1 year until you pass.


Q. Is this class offered online?


Yes, we will be offering a streaming version of this course. However, NATE requires all testing to be in-person. So if you want to take part in the testing portion of the class you’ll need to travel to our testing site for Week 5 in order to take the test in person.


Q. When will this class be offered in my state/city?


We are currently working on expanding to new locations in the southeast. If you’d like us to hold a seminar in your area, please use the chat box below and let us know, or call us at 800-992-1910.
