Boiler Exam Preparation Class

Make sure you're ready before you take the boiler exam.

Learn all you need to know in preparation for the Special Engineer License exam for the state of Minnesota.  Designed for MHA, this course was created in conjunction with St. Paul College and boiler professionals who have written & revised the MN State exam for years.

This is a fast moving course, so come ready to take notes! Photographs or recordings of presentation materials are prohibited. Limited exam prep handouts are provided.

PLEASE NOTE: MHA does not offer the exam. You will need to arrange for testing, including all required paperwork, directly with the MN Department of Labor and Industry.

Improper identification and use of refrigerants can damage or destroy HVAC equipment, lead to personal injury and cause serious environmental damage. The EPA Section 608 Technician Certification is required by law to be able to work on building air conditioning and refrigeration systems or to handle refrigerants.

How does Self-Study work?  Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive a packet of study materials. You’ll study on your own, at your own pace and then attend a proctored exam*. You’ll receive your results directly from the testing agency in approximately two weeks. Please note there is no classroom instruction associated with this program.
