Section 608 Technician Certification Programs

Programs on this list are approved to provide the EPA Section 608 technician certification test.

Important considerations about these programs:

  • Most Type I programs provide on-site testing. Type I programs that offer a mail-in testing option are identified.
  • The addresses and phone numbers listed below are for the programs' headquarters. Many programs offer testing locations throughout the country. Each program will be able to provide you with their testing locations.
  • Programs marked with an asterisk ( * ) are intended specifically for the employees of those programs' companies.

EPA does not review or approve any training preparatory programs or materials. A separate listing of certifying programs that no longer offer testing services is available here. Certification credentials issued by these programs during the time that they were approved are still valid. The following links exit the site Exit
