Registration is for participation in the EPA Section 608 online PROCTORED examination.

Within 24-48 hours of registering for the exam, students will receive information on scheduling their online examinationsession with a virtual proctor. Examinations must be scheduled a minimum of 72 hours in advance.

Once the examination is complete, students will gain immediate access to their results. Official certification documents will be mailed from the processing center the next business day.

The test contains four sections: CORE, I, II, III.

Each section contains twenty five (25) multiple choice questions. A technician must achieve a minimum passing score of 70% on each test section in which they are to be certified. For instance, a technician seeking Universal certification must achieve a minimum score of 70 percent, or 18 out of 25 correct, on each of the Sections of the test.

If a technician fails one or more of the Sections on the first try, they may retake the failed Section(s) without retaking the Section(s) on which they earned a passing score (additional testing fees apply). In the meantime, the technician will be certified in the Type for which they received a passing score. There is one exception; a technician MUST achieve a passing score on the CORE Section to receive any certification.

NOTE: Any exam section retakes will require additional testing fees and are not included with your original registration.

CORE Section contains 25 general knowledge questions concerning stratospheric ozone depletion, rules and regulations of the Clean Air Act, the Montreal Protocol, refrigerant recovery, recycling and reclaiming, recovery devices, substitute refrigerants and oils, recovery techniques, dehydration, recovery cylinders, safety, and shipping.

Section I contains 25 sector specific questions pertaining to small appliances.

Section II contains 25 sector specific questions pertaining to high pressure appliances.

Section III contains 25 sector specific questions pertaining to low pressure appliances.

Test Time Limit:  120 minutes

Please Note:  The only outside materials allowed are a temperature/pressure chart and a calculator.

Certain personal information is required on the exam. Technicians should be prepared to present:

  • Picture identification
  • Social security number (an alternate unique ID number can be used for non-US applicants) 
  • Home address

Technicians should carefully study the CORE Section and the Section(s) related to the Type of certification in which they are seeking to achieve a passing score.


EPA 608 Technician Certification Is the LAW! 

If an employer does not have this certification on file, they are subject to heavy fines (max $27,500) as well as the employee who does not have this specific certification. Any required Local, State or Industry licenses do not eliminate the requirement for EPA 608 Technician Certification if you work on refrigerant containing equipment.

Rules and guidelines for performing maintenance, service, repair, or disposal of an appliance that contain refrigerant chemicals are global; and therefore, US EPA Technician Certification is recognized internationally.

Certification Renewal & Replacement Cards:

The EPA 608 Certification does not expire. If you need to replace your card, visit the EPA website for instructions.
