TCA
Technician Technical Core Assessment Exam

If you’re not sure where to start or what you should study first, start with this online assessment of your current knowledge. The Technical Core Assessment will indicate a student’s strengths and weaknesses in 13 areas of the HVAC Core Knowledge and your readiness for industry certification exams such as NATE. From there, we can design an individual education program of courses to bring the student technician’s skills up to the industry standards for excellence.


The total assessment consists of 270 randomly selected questions. Upon completion of the assessment and evaluation by HVACRedu.net staff, the examinee will be provided with an individual education plan via email. Performance on the assessment will determine the structure of this plan.


This is a great way to assess your knowledge. On the other hand, if you’re a manager or supervisor, it is a great way to establish a training plan for new hires or your existing technicians. Registration for the TCA does not require you to take all 13 of the assessments. You can take only those that are important to you, or you can take all of them.


You’ll receive an email with your results and an individualized learning plan shortly after you complete the assessment.
