Even without a state-level license, you will need to get the EPA Section 608 Technician Certification.
It’s a mandatory certification for all technicians working with refrigerants to ensure they can safely handle these harmful chemicals.
Some of Kansas’s localities will require you to get a local-level license before you can provide HVAC services.
For example, in Wichita, the city will issue you the following licenses if you meet its criteria:
