To become a certified mechanic is a two part process. This process is for those wishing to take the online assessment followed by a certification at an Industry or PBMA event.
Step 1 is to complete the online assessment, the link and access code are available once you have paid the fee
Step 2 is to attend an in-person certification session, we have 12 testing sessions scheduled during CABDA West in San Diego:
There are currently no scheduled in-person certification events.
Upon successful completion of steps 1&2 you will receive a PBMA Certified Mechanic Placard and your certification at the basic level is now valid for two years.
More details about certification can be found here
Upon purchase you will be able to download a link to complete the online test with your unique user code in addition to a basic study guide for the in-person exam... you can save a copy of that or capture a screenshot in the event you need to exit and return to the exam.
