Hiring Qualified Equipment Service Technicians
The AED Foundation Can Help


AED Technical Assessments provide you with a convenient online tool to evaluate entry-level or experienced technicians’ core technical knowledge in key subject areas.  Available in both English and Spanish, AED Technical Assessments are priced at $50 per test for AED members and $150 for non-AED members.  Once your company’s online assessments admin area is set up by Foundation staff, tests can be ordered conveniently by credit card.
 
Benefits
Evaluate prospective technicians’ core knowledge prior to hiring.
Identify areas where current technicians can benefit from additional training.
Manage the entire assessments process online, from purchase to results and benchmarking, via your individual company password-protected online admin area.
Deploy technical assessments and receive and analyze results online quickly and conveniently.
All results are archived in AED’s assessments system, and can be easily retrieved at any time.
Results and benchmarking reports are created with user-selected criteria as to report types, time ranges, and types of benchmarking data.  
Compare the results of your employees to one another, to collective company results, to the collective results of other dealers utilizing assessments, or to students graduating from 2-year equipment technology college degree programs.
 
The Assessment
The assessment is available in both English and Spanish.
The assessment questions were developed by an equipment industry task force of 24 technical experts representing AED dealers, equipment manufacturers and AED Accredited technical colleges nationwide. 
The test is fully aligned with AED National Construction Equipment Technical Standards that are now in their 7th edition. The Standards are updated regularly via equipment industry task forces.
The 160 questions in the 120 minute timed assessment evaluate core knowledge in the areas of diesel engines, power trains, electric/electronics, A/C and heating, hydraulics/hydrostatics, and safety/administration.
Students receive a score in each of the above six areas, as well as an overall score.
In your individual online admin area, you can: order assessments, receive and assign individual test-taker usernames/passwords, deliver the test, receive results reports and create performance benchmarking reports.
 
We encourage you to explore how AED Technical Assessments can benefit your technician hiring and employee evaluation processes. For more information, contact Pat Novak at The AED Foundation, 630.468.5135 or pnovak@aednet.org
