Safety Inspection Mechanic Certification Program
This program leads to Safety Inspection Mechanic Certification by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. It contains classroom instruction, special category instruction, written examination, tool clinic, and tactile examination for each category.
Individuals will be notified of the date and time for the Tactile Examination during the Tool Clinic portion of the course. Upon successful completion of your Tactile Examination, your records will be forwarded to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation along with a recommendation for certification. The PA Department of Transportation, NOT the Dauphin County Technical School, issues this certification. You should receive your Safety Inspection Identification Card within three (3) weeks.
Cost $180 Cat 1 - $40 for each additional category (We accept Visa, MasterCard)
