Technicians who purchase and handle refrigerants and maintain HVAC systems
9th. Section 608 of the Federal Clean Air Act requires that all persons who maintain, service, repair or dispose of appliances that contain regulated substances be certified in proper refrigerant handling techniques. Technicians are required to pass an EPA-approved test to earn Section 608 Technician Certification. The tests are specific to the type of equipment the technician seeks to work on. Tests must be administered by an EPA-approved certifying organization. Section 608 Technician Certification credentials do not expire.
The Apartment Association of Greater Dallas is an approved provider for this EPA course thru the ESCO Institute! Attend this class if you need to obtain the EPA Type I, Type II, Type III, or Universal HVAC certification.
