The MACS office is very busy. Literally, thousands of Section 609 tests have tumbled in from the mail and from online test takers on the MACS website at www.macsw.org. Tests come in, go out for grading, come back and credentials are mailed to technicians in all fifty states and U.S. territories.
This is good news! Technicians and the businesses they work for are finally getting the message Section 609 certification is a federal requirement of all technicians opening the mobile A/C system of a motor vehicle and guess what it has been the law since 1990.
Once again, a reminder if you are an automotive technician working on motor vehicles and you want to service or repair mobile A/C systems you must be certified in refrigerant recovery and recycling.
Visit this link on MACS website for information on obtaining Section 609 certification.
Visit this link on the U.S. EPA website for more information.
The Mobile Air Conditioning Society’s blog has been honored as the best business to business blog in the Automotive Aftermarket by the Automotive Communications Awards and the Car Care Council Women’s Board!
When having your mobile A/C system professionally serviced, insist on proper repair procedures and quality replacement parts. Insist on recovery and recycling so that refrigerant can be reused and not released into the atmosphere.
