Test and Balance Technician


CAABC requires that all eligible technicians employed by member agencies be certified. Eligible technicians are defined as those with a minimum of three (3) years test and balance experience who have been employed by a CAABC agency for the past 12 months.

Also, technicians must be competent in air, water, sound and vibration testing. Technicians must also be able to perform all work in accordance with the CAABC National Standards. The final requirement for certification is that technicians pass the required examination.

Candidates who received a passing score on the certification exam are issued a Technician Certification Number and an Annual Certificate. Technician certification is renewable on an annual basis, and is only valid while employed by a CAABC member firm.

Candidates for technician certification undergo intensive field training in addition to classroom instruction. Each CAABC member agency is responsible for the administration of in-house training programs of their employees.
