We also strongly recommend that your test-out technicians have an NCI Residential Air Balancing certification, so they know how to balance HVAC systems properly using NCI protocols.

To learn more and enroll in the program, go to NCICertified.net or go directly to our Online Application. We spell out all of the qualifications and requirements here.

Once your application is approved, you will be able to purchase access to ComfortMaxx Verify in the cloud, and you can also acquire your first certification packets.

The Training Aspect

NCI provides online training to participants and their employees included in the program at no additional cost. We also have a consumer website designed to help educate your customers about the benefits of Certified System Performance. Just point your browser to NCICertified.com.
