Become Certified to Conduct Mechanical Acceptance Testing

If you are already working in the HVAC field and would like to take stand out from the crowd, becoming a certified Mechanical Acceptance Testing Technician (MATT) may be for you.

Becoming a Certified Mechanical Acceptance Testing Technician

In the very near future, new California regulations will come into effect. These regulations require that acceptance testing be performed on all commercial or multi-family residential HVAC installations. The new regulations will be phased in by late 2018, and will become mandatory for all new construction projects.

Testing must be completed by certified Mechanical Acceptance Test Technicians (MATT) to ensure that the installations meets California energy code standards. Without this testing, the building permit process cannot be completed and certificates of occupancies cannot be issued. Becoming MATT certified now will put you in high demand as companies prepare their teams to meet these new requirements.

HVAC technicians who have a minimum of 36 months of experience in their field are eligible for certification through both NEBB and RSES. 



Flexible Schedules
Our training program offers flexible schedules to support HVAC professionals and is the only one of its kind to allow non-union HVAC technicians the opportunity to become MATT certified.


Industry Experienced Instructors
With over 30 years in HVAC certification training, we know what it takes to prepare for certification while still balancing your career and personal responsibilities.


Specialized Training
Eugene Silberstein, author of the top selling HVACR textbook, “Refrigeration And Air Conditioning Technology” will conduct training. If you have never been in one of his classes you are in for a treat. 

 Getting the Skills to Pass the NEBB or RSES MATT Exam

There are up to 17 individual tests a MATT would need to conduct, and each Technician will need to show they have critical knowledge about:

  • Standards for mechanical systems
  • California Title 24, Part 6 regulations and requirements
  • Which tests are required for which installations
  • Information required for compliance on every form
  • Building Energy Efficiency Standards for mechanical systems

If you are interested in taking this first step towards becoming an RSES Mechanical Acceptance Test Technician this is for you.



Brownson Technical School is One of Only Two Non-Union MATT Training and Testing Centers in California
