PBMA Certification Online Test
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. The online assessment (what you are purchasing here) is $25, the in-person testing an additional $200. PBMA Members receive a $20 discount on the online test and a $150 discount on in-person testing.
Step 1 is to complete the online assessment, the link and access code are available once you have paid the fee. Upon successful completion you will be sent a certificate of achievement that you may download and print. This certificate signifies that you have passed an online assessment related to bicycle safety. Certificates are emailed out monthly. If you are in need of it urgently please email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will expedite your certificate.
Part II - the in-person testing will be available at PBMA and CABDA events only. Everyone who has passed the online assessment will be emailed a link for signup. Space is limited at each location and is filled on a first come first served basis. This email is sent out once a month year round.
Upon successful completion of the online and in-person assessment individuals will receive a metal placard and be eligible for a certified mechanic designation in the PBMA's Find a Mechanic map - you may view that map here
