National Certification
National Certifications are important to the true professional. The HVAC industry is in need of competent individuals who have skills that are validated by certification credentials. We can offer you the training to gain the skills needed and the certifications to prove that you are truly a professional.

Section 608 of the Federal Clean Air Act requires that all persons who maintain, service, repair or dispose of appliances that contain regulated refrigerants be certified in proper refrigerant handling techniques. EPA Certification is necessary to work in the HVAC industry in all 50 States as well as all US protectorates and military bases outside of the US. We prepare all our students for 608 testing and provide on-site testing as part of the program.
