How can I get a PTCS Technician ID?
After the technician has created an online account, the PTCS team has received the complete application, and approved the training, the team will activate the account. The PTCS Technician ID will be sent to the email on file with the account.
I have an industry certification. Can I get a certification without additional training?
We accept several industry certifications. A list of all approved alternative certifications in the PTCS Duct Sealing and Heat Pump Program Participation Requirements is available.
What if I change companies?
Submit a new Certified Technician Application with your new company information and an explanation of what was updated to ResHVAC@bpa.gov. Do not enter jobs completed with your new company before your account has been updated.
Do I need a new online account for each new certification I obtain?
No. We will update your existing account with the additional certifications listed on your application.
If I get locked out of my account or forget my password, should I create a new account?
No. Please don’t create another account. Call the program team at 1-800-941-3867 and we can help you get the information you need.
