epa section 608 type 3 practice testEPA 608 Type 3 Practice Test

I have put together a study guide for the EPA 608 Type 3 test that will get you prepared to take the test. All of these questions are relevant knowledge that you should know and I’d suggest taking this test as many times possible until you get all of the questions correct. I’d also suggest checking out the EPA 608 core practice test as well since you will have to take the core along with the Type 3 test.

If you are interested in taking other EPA practice tests you can find them below:

You can begin the test below. Good luck!
