Yes, but I don't believe you're supposed to hook your gauges up to a system that holds more than five lb, so technically you have the right to work on stuff like refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers and window units.

He's an electrician, he probably has article 680 of the NEC on the brain.

You need type II. Technically, a mini split is not a unitary unit. It is 2 separate parts. Unitary would be one part. EG: Window unit, PTAC, etc.

And since your Type I was open book, you'll have to take the full Type II test with everything proctored.

He will not need to take part I over. Show them your type I card and on the test is a spot you check that states you already have some parts. While your taking type II, might as well take type III also and get your universal.
It doesn't matter if he took the first part with another company. I'm also a proctor and give this test.

Where is a good place to get schooled to take the test...

most supply houses offer this. Prices will very. The school I taught at had a separate 2 day class for this. first Monday we went over the manual. 2nd Monday they took the test. If you only needed a retest and came in the day of the test, it was like only 50 bucks. also check with the community colleges if they have a program.

just tell them your taking a retest so the correct box can be marked. this way you don't need to take the core and type I.
