TECHNICIAN LICENSING EQUIVALENCY OPTIONS AVAILABLE FROM YOUR LOCATION COLLISION REPAIR ASSOCIATION

A number of workers in the autobody and collision damage repair trade have been employed in the trade in excess of the 7000 hours required for a licensed technician. However, they are not registered technicians.

Traditionally the only way to become a licensed technician would be to complete an in-class learning portion of 720 hours for training as a registered apprentice and an approximate time of three years working with a qualified technician, before challenging the qualification exam. An alternative equivalency process is also available. Your local Association has introduced a complementary package.

Included in the package:
  • Process for trades equivalency including application page
  • Curriculum of competencies required
  • Pre-license training class information
  • Fee information for license exam

If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact your local Collision Repair Association at 1-866-309-4272 or e-mail info@ciia.com
