To become Type I Certified you must pass the Core and Type I sections of the 608 exam.

  • What is a Type II Certification?

    Technicians receiving a passing grade on the Type II (medium-, high-, and very high-pressure) examination are certified to recover refrigerant during the maintenance, service or repair of high-pressure equipment (Medium-Pressure R-12, R-114, R-134a, R-401A and R-500; High-Pressure R-22, R-502, R-402A, R-402B, R-404A, R-407A, R-407B, R-407C, and R-410A; and Very-High-Pressure R-13, R-23, and R-503).

  • What is the difference between Type I and Type I Open Book?

    In terms of the certification itself, nothing. A Type I Open Book Certification is a Type I Certification and they both enable you to do the same thing. The difference is in the core section only, an unproctored (open book) grade for the core section will not count towards a Type II, Type III, or Universal certification. Therefore, if a Type II, Type III or Universal Certification is desired you must retake and pass the core section in the proctored environment. See the table below to determine which exams you need to take to reach your desired certification level:
