A Certified Emissions Repair Technician, or CERT, is a professional automotive technician who has successfully passed a State of Connecticut required training program devoted specifically to the repair of emissions problems. A repair facility that employs a CERT is designated as a Certified Emissions Repair Facility (CERF). Only repairs performed at a CERF are eligible to be applied towards a cost waiver.
