Inspection Technician is the most commonly taken programme as it examines the candidates’ knowledge against the VOSA testers’ manual.
To complete this programme candidates should be competent at inspecting a large commercial vehicle (7.5+ tonnes) and identifying faults.
Eligibility to undertake the Inspection Technician route requires you to be working in a commercial workshop and have a minimum of three years experience which needs to be verified.
All assessment centres recommend the Inspection Technician Licence which takes at least half a day in your workplace. Requirements include access to an inspection area, a Large commercial vehicle (7.5+ tonnes) to carry out an inspection on and wifi access for exams. After successful completion of both exams and practical assessment, you will be awarded an Inspection Technician accreditation/qualification, certificate, identification card and be added to the IRTEC Technicians Directory which lasts for five years.
Additional costs to training include additional transport i.e. ferries, planes and hire vehicles.
