Contractors, Gain Access to New Customers

While NATE certification is reserved exclusively for individual technicians, NATE allows contractors of all sizes to participate in the NATE Consumer Contractor Connection (C3) program.

As a NATE C3 Contractor, you can:

  • Display the NATE contractor logo on all of your promotional materials. Click here to access logos and free marketing materials.

With C3 membership, you not only receive the benefits of professionalismcustomer confidence and profitability, you gain access to new customers. Whether you are a one-person shop or have NATE-certified technicians in multiple locations, NATE’s C3 program is the best way to let customers know you employ NATE-certified technicians with a free listing on our contractor locator, that receives 5,000 visits monthly.

To qualify, a contractor must have at least 25 percent of its eligible service and installation technicians NATE-certified. You may then register to be listed on the NATE contractor locator with your company information and the technicians’ NATE ID numbers.

  • Instructions on how to maintain your C3 account are available here.
