In response to the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis, the Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC) is taking necessary measures to maintain continuous operation of its technician certification program.

Effective immediately, the EETC is administering all of its online certification exams without a proctor for the next 90 days (with an automatic 90-day extension if necessary). Exam pricing for non-members is $59 (versus $49 for members) and for students to receive the $39 discounted test price schools ­­must have an active school membership.

“We know the effects of the coronavirus have impacted everyone, and we wanted to make sure our students and technicians have access to our online testing without the need of a test proctor,” said EETC Executive Director Erik Sides. “EETC was already transitioning to proctor-less testing, so this just made the most sense to us.”

To become an EETC member, go to, click on the “Register” tab, and select the appropriate member type. The annual membership fees for colleges/universities and high schools are only $250 and $100, respectively, and student sub-accounts can be added for $12 per student. This is a great value not only because of the $20 discount for student exams, but it also includes access to the EETC’s technician portal, which houses 15 online courses and 7 study guides (valued at more than $400 for non-members). Dealers have the opportunity to access the same resources within the technician portal and receive a $10 discount on certification exams for a $60 annual membership fee. Additional sub-accounts for technicians can be added for $12.
