York International Corporation's Unitary Products Group (UPG) is encouraging HVAC professionals to support the Partnership for Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA) and North American Technician Excellence (NATE) by donating equipment to schools and offering incentives and training to dealers. York donated HVAC units and products to Oklahoma State CareerTech schools that offer HVAC programs and encouraged the schools to participate in the PAHRA accreditation program. The company also offered incentives to York Liberties™ dealers that employ NATE-certified technicians. The PAHRA and NATE programs York supports are linked by the requirement that PAHRA-accredited schools be taught by NATE-certified technicians.
