EETC launches online, non-proctored four-stroke engine certification exam recognized by Briggs & Stratton

 

 

KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. (2/25/19) — The Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC) is stepping up its efforts to address the critical shortage of qualified service technicians in the outdoor power equipment industry by introducing an online, non-proctored, four stroke engine certification exam. The new exam has received recognition from Briggs & Stratton Corporation.

"The EETC has really improved its exam technology, making it easier for anyone to take a test,” said John Piechowski, director, global dealer support, Briggs & Stratton Corporation. “We're excited to begin recognizing the EETC’s four-stroke engine exam as equivalent to our ‘Authorized Dealer’ exam. Technicians can now take either exam for Briggs & Stratton educational credit."

Now, instead of having to go through the EETC’s previous process of looking online for a proctor to administer the exam, contacting the proctor to arrange a time and place to take the test, and then often having to travel long distances to take the exam, those individuals looking to become four-stroke engine certified can take the test online, without a proctor, at their own convenience.

“This streamlines the whole process and allows them to take the test 24/7,” said EETC Executive Director Erik Sides. “We’re moving to proctor-less testing for all eight of our certifications.”

For security purposes, Sides said each online certification exam will be different, with 150 questions randomly selected from a large bank of questions, and the answer choices will even be randomly arranged. The new certification test will not be retroactive for Briggs & Stratton educational credit, only the new online four-stroke engine exam # 419 will be recognized. 

 

For more information and to register for the EETC’s new online four-stroke engine certification test, go to www.eetc.org/page/11FourStroke.

Hey Benjamin, the test has to be setup so you would receive an email back from us within 24 hours with the test link and testing instruction. Note: this is currently just for the Four Stroke Engine exam, we will be transitioning other exams but we have to build-up our test question banks for each test to ensure security of our certification exams.

I saw here in the comments that I can enter "Four Stroke Test" in the proctor fields. The emails that follow after registration don't have any way to actually take the test. Does that just get sent over later?

Erik, this is Gene Johnson from Bland Correctional Center. As you know we are in a prison setting and inmates are not allowed access to computers. How will that affect my students here? Will I still be able to do a paper test for them? thanks
