At AED, we know how much the skills gap is affecting most of our members and how important it is for them to recruit and keep technically skilled workers. The association wants to provide our dealers a program that will make it easier to keep technicians in their dealerships. Using our popular technical assessments, we have created a program that can help you determine the knowledge levels of your technicians and provide them with an industry certification to prove that knowledge.
The AED Foundation’s new Certified Technician Program is the first of its kind for the construction equipment distribution industry. This program uses assessments to measure the knowledge of your technicians, while giving them a certification of this knowledge that you can market to your customers. The technical assessment is aligned with The AED Foundation’s national technical standards for diesel equipment core technical knowledge.
These assessments also give you a way to benchmark your technicians, not only against those in your dealership who have completed the same assessment, but against others in the industry who have taken the test.
