LUBBOCK, Texas (Jan. 18, 2017) – To address the need for formal training opportunities and the shortage of qualified technicians in the small engine and power equipment industry, CEV Multimedia and the Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC) have partnered to develop the Principles of Small Engine Technology student certification program.

Endorsed by the EETC, the Principles of Small Engine Technology student certification program serves as an introduction to the skills needed to enter the outdoor power equipment industry by providing foundational knowledge of four-stroke small engines. Certification lessons cover topics related to four-stroke engines, including component identification and theory of operation, along with the basics of: fuel, emissions, electrical and governor systems. Included are videos demonstrating engine disassembly, reassembly and basic troubleshooting. To earn the certification, students complete 11 modules and a 100-question final exam.

“We strive to provide relevant and meaningful training opportunities for students providing them the first step on the pathway to a career within the power equipment industry,” said Erik Sides, executive director of EETC. “Working with CEV Multimedia on a new student certification program shows our dedication to help address the growing need for skilled technicians in our industry.”

Students and educators access the certification through iCEV, an online learning platform offering practical, interactive learning with professional demonstrations, to prepare students for post-secondary education and high-skill, high-demand careers. Educators can quickly monitor, track and engage students directly through the platform’s interactive lessons.

“Lessons included in the small engine certification program are built to provide students with a solid foundation in four-stroke engines,” said Dusty Moore, iCEV president. “EETC brings valuable expertise and knowledge from a network of small engine and power equipment manufacturers that will surely benefit students’ seeking a career in the industry.”
