With 119,000 and growing, HVAC Excellence is the leading and largest provider of certifications in the HVACR industry.

We offer over 40 credentialing exams, allowing us to be specific in aiding you in your career.

Certification is an aid in identifying the scope and level of a technician’s competency. We recognize that a single certification cannot meet the needs of everyone in the industry. We provide students, experienced technicians and educators with programs designed to meet their individual needs.
