“MACS is proud to have been the pioneer provider of the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Section 609 service technician refrigerant recovery and recycling education program,” says Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and chief operating officer. “We are very excited to have now passed well over the 1 million certified technicians mark and look forward to providing more certifications and education to service technicians when our new R-1234yf program is given final approval by EPA.”
This is a good time to remind all automotive service technicians that if they work on mobile A/C systems using R-12, R-134a and R-1234yf that under Section 609 of the U.S. Clean Air Act they must be certified to recover and recycle refrigerant.
MACS provides Section 609 certification education through leader led classes, independent study tests and online testing. Technicians who have lost their credentials may call the MACS office at 215/631-7020 x 0 to obtain reprints for $10 each. A reprint order form is available on the MACS website at www.macsw.org under the Section 609 certification tab.
