The MACS proctored Section 609 Certification training seminar consists of a PDF presentation to be narrated by the instructor, and the distribution of the MACS certification training manual. The test is a 25-question closed book test. The Proctor/Trainer then collects the tests and submits them to the MACS office.
The tests are graded by an independent scoring facility which reports the results to MACS. If a passing score is obtained, MACS mails a certificate and a wallet-sized identification card to the technician.
The technician is then certified to purchase refrigerant R-12, R-134a and R-1234yf and perform service on mobile A/C systems. If the test is not successfully passed, the technician receives a second test (with different questions) at no additional charge.
Tests are available in English and Spanish. The fee per test is $15. Technicians who lose their credentials will be charged a $10 replacement fee. For additional questions call MACS Worldwide at (215) 631-7020 and press “0” for operator.
