The EPA Section 608 test is intended to measure a technician's knowledge of refrigerant containment laws as established by the Clean Air Act. Areas covered by the test include modern service, installation and disposal practices for refrigerant bearing appliances and the proper use and maintenance of equipment required for this purpose. Questions also require knowledge of how and why refrigerants effect our environment.  This full day course will include review, exam and training materials (breakfast & lunch to be provided).  

  • Certification Program Recognized by Mainstream Engineering Corp.
  • Instructor: George Stuckey of Fox Service
  • Exam Proctor: Johnstone Supply


  • $125 for AAFAME Members
  • $175 for Non-Members
  • Includes breakfast & lunch
  • Once the training materials are opened a refund cannot be issued


  • The person attending should have a basic knowledge of refrigeration.
  • We will mail the instruction manual to students before the class so they can review on their own time before the class (must register 10 days prior to training to have manual sent in advance, otherwise manual will be available day of class).
  • To purchase Freon you first must get the CFC certification and then you will need either a Texas Air Conditioning Contractors License (TACL) or you must register with the state (applicable to building engineers) by filling out Certificate to Purchase Freon form.  More information can be found on the TDLR website under Air Conditioning.
  • There are 4 parts to 3 levels of certification. All who take the test must pass the 1st part, called the "CORE”. After that you have 3 levels of certification: TYPE 1, TYPE 2 and universal. Passing the CORE & TYPE 1 allows you to buy refrigerant, but only refrigerant that is used in small refrigeration systems (those systems that hold less than 5# of refrigerant), TYPE 2 allows for purchase of refrigerant for TYPE 1 systems AND the refrigerant for commercial refrigeration systems, universal allows for purchase of all refrigerants to include the refrigerants used in large chiller systems.
  • The Universal License (Section 608) does not cover the R410A - this is in addition to the Universal License
