Seems I recall that in order to deal in R12 some form of official
paperwork was real handy to have. AND anyone could find the test to
take to get certification online. Humm it also amounted to an 'open
book' test. Folks at that time shouldn't have had any problems
I believe that also allowed any 'certified tech' to handle R12 products.
Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes...
That way, when you do judge them, you will be a mile away,
and they will have no shoes.
