Inspection Technician is the most commonly taken programme as it examines the candidates’ knowledge against the VOSA testers’ manual.
To complete this candidates should be competent at inspecting a light commercial vehicle (3.5-7.5 tonnes) and identifying faults. Eligibility to undertake the Inspection Technician route: you must be working in a commercial workshop and have a minimum of three years experience which needs to be checked.
All assessment centres recommend the Inspection Technician Licence which takes at least half a day and will take place at your workplace.
Requirements include access to an inspection area, a light commercial vehicle (3.5-7.5 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 transport i.e. ferries, planes and hire vehicles.
1 Day Assessment
