IRTEC Inspection Technician Bus and Coach Re-accreditation

Inspection Technician is the most commonly taken programme as it examines the candidate’s knowledge against the VOSA testers’ manual.
To complete this, candidates should be competent at inspecting a bus and coach 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 identified and checked.
All assessment centres suggest the Inspection Technician Licence takes at least half a day, taking place at your workplace. Requirements are: access to an inspection area, a bus and coach 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 added to the IRTEC Technicians Directory which lasts for five years.
Additional costs to training which are not included in the cost of training are additional transport including ferries, planes and hire vehicles.
