The EPA-Authorized Section 609 program that’s required if you service mobile A/C systems.

Technicians who service motor vehicle air conditioners must be trained and tested through a U.S. EPA-authorized organization, such as ASE. Training programs must cover the use of recycling equipment in compliance with industry standards, regulatory requirements, refrigerant containment, and the effects on the environment. To be certified, technicians must review the training material thoroughly and then pass a test demonstrating their knowledge of the training material.

The certificate earned as a result of a passing score on the refrigerant quiz is only deemed as certification in the context of the EPA. This credential is not the equivalent of technical certification from the ASE certification program.

The online ASE Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling Program matches the content found in the 2017 version of the printed booklet. You may also use 2015 and 2016 versions of the booklet to prepare for the quiz. Do not use any booklet version prior to 2015. To review the 2017 booklet, download a PDF version here.

The ASE Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling Review and Quiz is an EPA-approved program that meets Section 609 regulations from the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. This program is intended only for technicians servicing motor vehicle air conditioning (MVAC) systems. Under no circumstances should this program be considered as acceptable for Section 608 compliance, a separate requirement that applies to the servicing of other types of air conditioning systems. Also, some state and local jurisdictions have adopted their own credential requirements; check with your state and local authorities for details.

If you aren’t sure whether the air conditioning work you do is covered under Section 609, click here to review an application fact sheet from the U.S. EPA.
