Made up of more than 2,800 industry professionals, including manufacturers, distributors, dealers, associations, technicians and educators, the EETC is striving to create professional outdoor power equipment technicians for today’s sophisticated OPE products. In order to meet these needs, the association has developed the EETC Technician Certification program to measure the skill level of repair technicians currently working in the industry. It has also developed the EETC School Accreditation program to establish industry standards and provide a network of industry support for high schools and colleges that have started or are looking to start an outdoor power equipment program, training future technicians.
