Section 608 or 609 Technician Certification
As a customer, you must present a copy of one of your technician’s Section 608 or 609 Certification. Only one technician must be certified for us to sell you refrigerant. The price for the certification is approximately $20.
Wheelco’s Bookkeeping Recommendations
- Make a copy of certification and keep in designated folder. If you a customer of Wheelco, we must also keep a copy of the certification for 3 years after the sale.
- A copy of the invoice containing refrigerant must be filed in designated folder and kept for 3 years.
If You Need the 608 or 609 Technician Certification
