DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (June 18, 2003) — The Specialty Equipment Market Association will hold its fall test session on aftermarket accessories Nov. 13 in various locations.
Registration for the test, which is part of a program to certify technicians who install accessories on cars and trucks, closes Sept. 12. The SEMA program includes four modules: Z1, electronic sunroofs; Z2, body exterior components; Z3, leather interiors; and Z4, roof treatments.
To receive the SEMA credentials, technicians also must pass the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) A6 exam on electrical/electronic systems. The ASE tests also are in early November, SEMA said.
Technicians who pass both tests and meet work experience requirements will receive credentials from both SEMA and ASE that are valid for five years.
In the three sessions since SEMA started the program in November 2001, 36 installers earned the dual credential, and about 300 technicians are working toward the recognition.
