Curt's Credentials

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established a mandatory program that requires all technicians to be certified before performing maintenance, service, repair, or disposal of an appliance that contains refrigerant chemicals.


The agency has developed four types of certifications:

  • TYPE I - for servicing small appliances

  • TYPE II - for servicing high and very high-pressure appliances

  • TYPE III - for servicing low pressure appliances

  • UNIVERSAL - for servicing all appliances


HVAC licensing in Virginia is at 3 levels: journeyman, master, and contractor. To become either a journeyman HVAC or a master HVAC, there are two examination portions that must be passed: statutory and regulatory portion and the trade portion.

  • Pre-approval from the state is required to sit for the examination.

  • To sit for the trade examinations, a candidate must document that they have met one of the following experience requirements. Individuals who hold a currently valid license or certification from another state as a journeyman or master tradesman may sit for the same level examination by providing a copy of that license or certification card.


Master license:

  • One year of practical experience as a licensed Virginia journeyman; or

  • Ten years of practical experience in the trade, verified by an affidavit from those who observed the candidate’s work in the trade.

EPA regulations (40 CFR Part 82, Subpart F) under Section 608 of the Clean Air Act require that technicians who maintain, service, repair, or dispose of equipment that could release ozone-depleting refrigerants into the atmosphere must be certified. Starting on January 1, 2018, this requirement will also apply to appliances containing most substitute refrigerants, including HFCs.

Technicians are required to pass an EPA-approved test to earn Section 608 Technician Certification. The tests are specific to the type of equipment the technician seeks to work on. Tests are administered by an EPA-approved certifying organization. Section 608 Technician Certification credentials do not expire.
