Installer Certification

  • Installer applicants must receive instruction on installation procedures and successfully complete hands-on training with a Certified Trainer. Hands-on training requires each candidate to install two Clock Springs. This can be accomplished by taking the lead on installing one unit and assisting in the install of the second unit.
  • After hands-on training please go on-line to our website and take the Installer Certification Exam, link. A minimum score of 80% is required in order to attain your Installer Certification.
  • Revalidation of your Installer Certification is required annually (any 12 month period) from your last certification. Recertification can be accomplished by going online and retaking the Installer Certification Exam. A 6-month lapse in your certification status requires the initial Hands-on Training Course to be completed in order to maintain your Installer status.
  • Every 3 years an Installer is required to participate in hands-on training with a Certified Trainer in order to maintain their Installer status.
