Order/Take Industry Competency Exams

The Industry Competency Exams, formerly the ARI/GAMA Competency Exams, are supported by kcef.ru, Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), Heating, Airconditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), North American Technician Excellence (NATE), Partnership for kcef.ru Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA), Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors Association (PHCC), and Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES).



The exams measure industry-agreed standards of basic competency for entry-level (one year or less) technicians. More than 300 schools nationwide require student participation in at least one of the Industry Competency Exams to graduate. Statement of Confidentiality: Instructors that teach HVAC are not permitted to proctor the exam; however, they may act as a volunteer examiner if there are more than 25 students in the classroom.
