RSES Adds Hydronics to NATE Exam Prep Series

Originally published: 01.29.13 by HVACR Business Staff


Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) has added a new title to the Preparing for the NATE Exam series. 

The Hydronics manual is 146 pages and includes the following topics: introduction to hydronic heating; boilers; near-boiler piping system components; piping systems; controls; pumps; installation and maintenance; and fossil fuel-fired hydronic systems. The manual is printed on recycled paper and features full-color graphics that clarify important details.

Hydronic heating systems are becoming more popular in both residential and light commercial applications. Due to their high efficiency, quieter operation and design flexibility, demand for these systems is on the rise. There are some differences between gas and oil as the fuel source, and those differences are noted so that the technician and installer wishing to become NATE-certified can prepare for either the Hydronics-Gas exam or the Hydronics-Oil exam.

“The Hydronics title—RSES’ fifth book in the Preparing for the NATE Exam series—also includes review questions and an appendix with answers to ensure an individual understands the information presented. Also, creation of an instructor CD to accompany the manual is underway and is expected to be released later in 2013,” explains RSES Marketing Manager Kim Heselbarth.  

Additionally, Core Essentials, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps, Gas and Oil Heating,


and Air Distribution are available titles in the Preparing for the NATE Exam series. An additional title in commercial refrigeration is currently in development.  

The full manual series is designed to give heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians and installers the tools they need to be successful in mastering the key concepts required to pass the North American Technician Excellence examinations.
