The Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC) stepped up its efforts to address the critical shortage of qualified service technicians in the power equipment industry by introducing an online, non-proctored, 4-stroke engine certification exam. The new exam has received recognition from Briggs & Stratton Corp.
“The EETC has really improved its exam technology, making it easier for anyone to take a test,” John Piechowski, Director, Global Dealer Support, Briggs & Stratton Corp., says. “We’re excited to begin recognizing the EETC’s 4-stroke engine exam as equivalent to our ‘Authorized Dealer’ exam. Technicians can now take either exam for Briggs & Stratton educational credit.”
The new exam will allow individuals looking to become 4-stroke engine certified to 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,” EETC Executive Director Erik Sides adds. “We’re moving to proctor-less testing for all eight of our certifications.”
