Revocation of EPA Approval for Section 608 Technician Certification Programs

EPA has revoked approval of several technician certification programs that were formerly Approved to offer the Section 608 technician certification test, in accordance with 40 CFR 82.161. This action was taken because these programs are no longer in operation or did not comply with the requirements for Approved technician certification programs.

Technicians properly certified by these programs during the time the programs were Approved will remain certified. However, the programs listed below are no longer authorized to provide the certification test or to issue credentials to technicians.

For further information concerning technician certification, copies of regulations or fact sheets, please call the Stratospheric Protection Hotline at (800) 296-1996.
