Technicians should take the online test immediately after viewing the webinar on May 9. 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.
R-1234yf refrigerant is gaining popularity among vehicle manufacturers because it reduces the environmental impact of A/C systems in vehicles, helping manufacturers meet stringent vehicle emissions standards. Automakers can receive emissions credits for using environmentally friendly refrigerants, meaning aftermarket technicians will begin to see an increase in vehicles using R-1234yf.
The number of vehicles using
R-1234yf is expected to increase exponentially in the coming years as the refrigerant replaces the current industry-standard R134a.
