ARLINGTON, VA — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced that a new, revised and expanded edition of Refrigerant Transition and Recovery Certification Program Manual for HVACR Technicians is now available, along with an updated Certification Instructor Manual for 608 Technician Certification.

The expanded course manual also covers global warming, oils, and new refrigerants, as well as sample certification exam questions.
