This Online EPA 608 Technician Certification Course with Online Proctored Exams will enable you to obtain your EPA certification in order to work with and handle refrigerants in common air conditioners and HVAC units. EPA 608 Technician Certification is required by Section 608 of the Federal Clean Air Act for anyone who maintains, services, repairs, or disposes of appliances that contain regulated refrigerants. 


Registration includes:

  • On-demand access to online prep course, which reviews the CORE, Type I, Type II, and Type III exam material.
  • Online exam proctoring fees for CORE, Type I, Type II, and Type III test sections. Students must have access to a webcam to take the Type II and Type III exams online. 
  • All testing must be completed within 30 days of registration.


Program Details:

  • Access: Upon registering, within 1 business day you will receive an email with your access information for the online training program, as well as instructions for testing.
  • CORE and Type I sections of the exam can be taken online, and this fee is included with your registration.
    • You will be prompted to take these exams online after completing the study material.
    • If you only need Type I Certification, please call the instructor (phone number provided in initial login email) after you pass and they will begin processing your certification with the EPA.
  • For Type II, Type III, or Universal Certification:
    • Sections II and III of the exam must be proctored via webcam.
    • Please call the instructor to schedule your Type II and/or Type III exams once you have passed the online CORE & Type I exams and have reviewed all study material.
    • If you do not have a webcam, a list of local proctors will be provided to you after completion of the course. Please note that the in-person proctor fee may vary, and is NOT included with this registration. Average fees are $35 per session, during which you can sit for both exam sections.
  • Timing: The review sections of this course will take approximately 2 hours to complete in total, and each test has a 30 minute time limit. Therefore, not accounting for time to schedule your proctored exams, this program takes approximately 4 hours to complete to achieve Universal Certification. 
  • A PDF EPA certification card is emailed to you typically within 1 business day of passing your exams.

Which Type of Certification Do I Need? 

There are four (4) categories of technician certification that this course prepares you for:

TYPE I: To maintain service or repair small appliances.

TYPE II:  To maintain, service, repair or dispose of high pressure appliances, except small appliances and motor vehicle air conditioning systems.

TYPE III:  To maintain, service, repair, or dispose of low pressure appliances.

UNIVERSAL:  Persons, who maintain, service or repair both low and high pressure equipment, as well as small appliances, must be certified as Universal technicians. Technicians must pass the CORE, I, II, & III exam sections to achieve the Universal Certification. 


Test Details

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

Each section contains twenty five (25) multiple choice questions and there is a 30 minute time limit for each. 70% is a passing score. 

A technician must pass the CORE exam plus any section(s) they wish to be certified in based on what type of work they'll be doing. For example, CORE + Type II =  Type II Certification. Passing all 4 sections earns the Universal Certification.

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. 

Exam Retakes: Within 30 days of registration, users are permitted 1 retake for the Type II & III proctored exams at no additional fee. After two total attempts or after 30 days, the retest fee is $35 per attempt. Any additional fees required to retake an exam section are not included with your original registration.


Exam content:

  • 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.


The EPA law requires the test to be a closed book exam for Type II and III. The only outside materials allowed are a temperature/pressure chart and a calculator.

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

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



EPA 608 Technician Certification Is the LAW! 

If an employer does not have this certification on file, they are subject to heavy fines (max $44,536) 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. 


Certification Renewal & Replacement Cards:

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


608 Certification Outside of the US:

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.
