EPA Section 608 Technician Certification



Section 608 of the US Federal Clean Air Act requires all persons who work with regulated refrigerants to be certified. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approves organizations to administer the EPA Section 608 Technician Certification exam and provides them with a test bank of questions. The United Association's Section 608 Technician Certification Program is approved by the EPA to administer this testing. As part of the curriculum, all Building Trades and Mechanical Equipment Service apprentices receive training in the use of refrigerants and are required to take the EPA Section 608 Technician Certification exam.
