Equipment and Engine Training Council, Inc. (EETC)

The Equipment & Engine Training Council is a non-profit professional organization that was incorporated in November, 1997.  The objective of the organization is to promote and support the education and training of service technicians in outdoor power equipment, agriculture, and commercial power equipment technology.  In order to raise the level of technicians in the power equipment industry, the EETC developed and maintains the EETC Technician Certification Program.  THE EETC is the certifying body for the program.  Technicians may choose from seven available tests that were developed by industry professionals to ensure the latest technologies are included.

The available tests are:

  • Four Stroke Test
  • Two Stroke Test
  • Electrical Test
  • Compact Diesel Test
  • Generator Test
  • Driveline/Hydro Test
  • Reel Technology Test

What to do in order to test:

  1. In order to keep the EETC certification tests secure and of value to you as an individual technician, all of our tests are given by a test administrator or proctor. Your first step is to find a proctor near you. There may be several different proctors in your area. You may contact any or all of them to arrange the best date, time, and location for you to take the test.

  2. Complete the test registration form. Be sure to enter the test administrator's name and information, the test date and time you have arranged, and send the fully completed form, along with payment, to the EETC Certification Center.

  3. We strongly recommend that you order your study guide at the same time you send in your test registration form.

  4. Study for your test. There are sample questions taken from the test in your study guide so that you can check yourself. The answers for the sample questions are in the back of the guide.

On the day of the test:

  1. Arrive 20 minutes early on the day of your test. This will give you time to sign in and receive instructions. You will have two hours to complete the test.

  2. You will be allowed to use scratch paper for any mathematical calculations during the test. You will need to turn in these "scratch sheets" at the end of testing time.

  3. You will not be allowed to use your study guide, calculator, or cheat sheets during the test period. All cellular telephones must be turned off and stored.

  4. When you have completed your test, take the test booklet, score sheet, and any scratch paper and submit it to the test administrator/proctor. You may finish the test earlier than the two-hour time limit. Be respectful of other technicians while leaving the room.

Test Results:

  1. You will receive notification of your test results in the mail within ten days.

  2. If you have successfully passed the test, you will receive a certificate, patch, and chevron along with a congratulatory letter.

  3. If you are unsuccessful in passing the test, you will receive a letter outlining the areas of the test that will need improvement. You can re-take the test by contacting the test administrator/proctor to arrange a date, time, and location. You will need to complete a new registration form and indicate on the form that you are re-testing.
