In order to handle refrigerants, you will need an EPA certification which is required by law.
There are 3 types of certifications, from which the first type is the easiest to get.
However, if you want a license that does not expire and covers everything, we suggest a universal one.
If you plan on managing refrigerants in vehicles only, you will be covered by EPA Section 609.
HVAC jobs are in demand in a state like New York, so start your training in order to improve your skills and become a successful tech.
