EPA Certification

Section 608 of the Federal Clean Air Act requires anyone who services or repairs appliances and equipment containing regulated refrigerants to be certified. During this course, learn about the proper regulated refrigerant handling techniques and the four (4) sections that make up EPA 608 universal certification.

The EPA 608 certification consists of and requires four sections – Core, Type I, Type II, & Type III.

  • Core covers general refrigerant/regulation knowledge. Much of Type I, II, & III section material builds on or relates to the Core section material. The student must pass Core & at least one other section to receive a certification card. The core section is not a certification in itself.
  • Type I covers small appliances with 5lbs of refrigerant or less & sealed at the factory, such as domestic refrigerators, window air conditioners, PTAC, and vending machines. A certified Type I technician has passed both the Core and the Type I sections.
  • Type II covers equipment using a high-pressure refrigerant (HCFC-22), including residential air conditioners and heat pumps, supermarket refrigeration, and process refrigeration. A certified Type II technician has passed both the Core and the Type II section.
  • Type III covers equipment using a low-pressure refrigerant (HCFC-123 or CFC-11), primarily chillers. A certified Type III technician has passed both the Core and the Type III sections.
Universal certification requires passage of all four (4) sections.

A "technician" is defined as an individual who performs any of the following activities:
