AED Accreditation Technical Standards

AED’s national technical standards are provided in a publication titled “Standards for Construction Equipment Technology.” Now in their eighth revision, the Standards were first published in 1997. Every three years, the publication is updated based on industry-expressed needs via industry task forces with technical expert representation from equipment dealers, manufacturers and AED Accredited college programs. They provide a technical description of what students should know when they graduate from such college programs, as well as what subjects and content that needs to be taught.

Over the years, well over a hundred equipment industry technical professionals have been involved in the Standards initiative. We at AED are proud to say that the Standards are truly “of the industry; for the industry.”
