Middle Bucks Institute of Technology’s Third Year Automotive Technology Students Pass Their ASE EPA 609 Certification

Middle Bucks Institute of Technology’s Automotive Technology pro­gram seniors passed their Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Environmental Protection Act-(EPA) 609 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling for Motor Vehicle Air Conditioning (MVAC) Service. Auto tech­ni­cians who repair or ser­vice a motor vehi­cle air con­di­tion­ing (MVAC) sys­tem must be prop­er­ly trained and cer­ti­fied under sec­tion 609 of the Clean Air Act.

The Automotive Technology stu­dents are sup­port­ed by their teacher, Mr. Robert Schwarz. “I am proud of our stu­dents for achiev­ing this impor­tant cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. It helps keep the envi­ron­ment clean and our cus­tomers cool. This is one of many indus­try cer­ti­fi­ca­tions that the Automotive Technology stu­dents can achieve dur­ing their three years at MBIT. “

This nation­al­ly rec­og­nized Automotive Service Excellence/National Automotive Training Education Foundation (ASE/NATEF), and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) accred­it­ed instruc­tion­al pro­gram pre­pares stu­dents to engage in the diag­no­sis, ser­vic­ing, and main­te­nance of all types of auto­mo­biles. The Automotive Technology pro­gram has also been rec­og­nized by the Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association (MVMA) Advisory Council and the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE). The Automotive Technology pro­gram also pro­vides an excel­lent foun­da­tion from which to pur­sue a two-or four-year col­lege degree.
