Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification training is now available at the MEDEVAC Mission Equipment Training (MEDMET) Center.

EPA certification is required based on Para 4-10 on page 44 of AR 750-1, Army Materiel Maintenance Policy, which reads, “Only technicians who are properly trained and/or certified can service pressurized fire suppression and environmental control systems [ECS]. This applies to all technicians (uniform, civil service or contractor) and all weapon systems. Training and certification must be in accordance with the environmental protection agency standards. Air condition technicians must be trained and certified. Fire Suppression System technicians need only be trained.”

To ensure MEDEVAC units meet this requirement, PD MEDEVAC is authorized to monitor the EPA examination at the MEDMET Center at Fort Hood, TX. All MEDEVAC units can register to attend a two-day EPA certification review and examination at the MEDMET Center for the following dates:
 
  • ECS-EPA Class 02: 11-12 Jan 2022 (10 seats)
  • ECS-EPA Class 03: 11-12 Apr 2022 (10 seats)
  • ECS-EPA Class 04: 12-13 Jul 2022 (10 seats)
To register or to get more information on the ECS-EPA training, contact the PD MEDEVAC training lead, Rom Ordonez, by email:
