BW Service Experts in Mishawaka, Ind., wins Super Bowl XLIII trip for two.



North American Technician Excellence announce its NATE Bowl grand-prize winner of a trip for two to Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Fla. ― BW Service Experts in Mishawaka, Ind.

“We are very excited to have won the NATE Bowl competition,” said Doug Gabbard, general manager of BW Service Experts. “We currently have 19 NATE-certified technicians here at BW Services Experts. We know how important the NATE program is – our technicians work very hard to stay up-to-date with the latest technologies and provide the best, most efficient solutions for our customers.”

The NATE Bowl competition, which kicked off in February 2008, was developed by NATE as a fun and rewarding way to build interest in getting more technicians certified and recertified this year. Teams earned points for every NATE-certified technician they had on staff. Additional points were earned each time a technician was certified (or recertified), or earned additional NATE credentials.

All points were accrued during the NATE Bowl season, which lasted through October 2008. Prizes also were awarded monthly in respective "divisions," which were based on company size.

“The NATE Bowl was a success in helping to encourage certification and increase professionalism across the HVACR industry,” said Rex Boynton, president of NATE. “For contractors, a larger number of NATE-certified technicians can mean fewer callbacks, less time spent on a job, and improved efficiency and productivity. This competition just added a little extra incentive.”
