Why Certify

Have Your Tech Certified

There are several reason this certification was developed, including:

  • A trained technician is able to troubleshoot an equipment repair more accurately than an untrained tech.
    (This could mean a tech will only go out to a call once and be able to troubleshoot accurately on the first attempt.)
  • A certification with 2 primary levels will allow you to set yourselves apart from the pack by having certified and trained technicians
  • The potential for a decrease in liability for companies bringing on a new certification, which will improve client safety and assurance of work and repairs
  • The improved ability to determine a career plan or path for potential technicians seeking employment
