Certified Technician Program

Not all technicians are created equal. The AED Foundation’s Certified Technician Program allows technicians to earn a professional industry certification by successfully passing an online technical assessment. The benefits of becoming AED Foundation Certified include:

  • Showing your professional commitment
  • Earning recognition for yourself, your dealership and from your peers
  • Demonstrating that your skills fully align with The AED Foundation’s industry-developed technical standards
  • Proving you can complete equipment repairs properly the first time
  • Investing in your career

Applicants will be notified immediately upon certification assessment completion whether they passed or not. Those passing and earning certification will receive their credential materials within 3 – 4 weeks. These include: certificate in wood frame, wallet card, hat, lapel pin, two shirt patches, and two tool box decals.  If an applicant does not pass, he or she has the opportunity to take the assessment one more time at no additional cost via the same login procedure.
