The AED Foundation has certified more than 500 diesel equipment technicians in 2019 through its Certified Technician Program. Since the program was launched in 2018, the Foundation has certified more than 900 technicians.

The Certified Technician Program is the only non-OEM technician certification program specifically for the construction equipment industry.

For construction equipment dealers, this program provides a way to benchmark technicians and reward their understanding by identifying strengths and weaknesses.
