UA STAR Qualified Technicians

A key component to becoming a MSCA STAR is that at least 25% of your technicians must be UA STAR certified when you apply. When a technician passes the UA STAR exam, it's proof to the customer that the technician has been adequately trained and possesses the knowledge necessary to perform their job. This means the customer can count on value, quality workmanship and dedication to the industry. And the UA STAR program is the only technician certification program in the HVACR industry that is ANSI accredited and ISO 9000 certified.
