An EPA Certification is tremendously beneficial if you want to work as an HVAC or Refrigeration technician. It helps you get a job and get a leg up over other job applicants. More importantly, it lets you do your job as a technician - only technicians with an EPA 608 certification are legally allowed to work with refrigerant.
What are the types of EPA certification? What EPA certification do I need for HVAC?
For HVAC, technicians need the EPA 608 Certification.
There are four types of EPA certification:
