Robinair, MACS Worldwide to Provide Free Section 609 Test Prep Webinar
Dec. 28, 2017—Robinair is partnering with the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Worldwide to provide a free Section 609 test prep webinar for training and certification for up to 125 technicians on Wednesday, Jan. 24 at 2 p.m. EST.
The webinar will be broadcast on a private YouTube channel. Registrants will receive the link to the webinar in advance of the webinar and a link for the test after the webinar.
The webinar will take approximately 90 minutes and at the end technicians can become Section 609 certified to work on vehicles using R-12, R-134a and R-1234yf refrigerant when they take and successfully pass the online test provided.
All technicians who wish to purchase refrigerant in quantities of two pounds or more must be Section 609 certified and show their credential at purchase.
Interested technicians can register by calling 215-631-7020 or by registering online at www.macsw.org
When technicians register for the webinar, they will receive a link to the webinar in advance of the event free of charge and courtesy of Robinair. Technicians should take the online test immediately after viewing the webinar on Jan. 24. If they pass the test, Section 609 credentials will be sent to them. Should a technician fail the test, one online re-test will be issued.
The MACS refrigerant recovery and recycling program was developed to meet the requirements under Section 609 of the Clean Air Act and was formally approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), effective Aug. 13, 1992. Since then, more than 1.1 million technicians have achieved Section 609 certification through its program.
