Refrigerant Handling (EPA 608)

It’s the law! To work on stationary air conditioners and refrigeration systems, you must be certified under Section 608 of the Clean Air Act.

ACCA and our partners, the Pennsylvania College of Technology, make it simple. As creators of the original and most popular EPA certification training programs and tests, ACCA has certified over 300,000 people.

608 Made Simple

Contractors, ensure your new hires and incoming technicians are certified properly to handle refrigerant — not just in the required way, but in the right way. ACCA makes it easy. Here’s how:

1) Become an ACCA proctor — download, complete and return this form.

2) Purchase a copy of “Understanding Section 608” — a complete computer video training package, taught by one of our industry’s top technical trainers.

3) Make sure you have an adequate supply of ACCA’s Study Guide for Section 608.

Now, when you need to certify new employees, have them go through the training videos and study guide, order tests direct from ACCA, administer the tests, and return them for grading. It’s the hassle-free way to get technicians both the proper certification and the proper education.
