ONLINE TRAINING & CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
AERA Cylinder Head and Engine Machinist Certification
With the absence of ASE machinist certification, AERA felt it necessary to offer our industry an alternative. Rather than a test to prove understanding, AERA has chosen to offer a comprehensive online training program leading to diploma-quality certificates for Cylinder Head Machinist and Engine Machinist. Technicians who successfully earn either certificate will hold proof that they have an elevated understanding of fundamentals of machining, measuring tools, shop safety, fasteners, engine theory, engine diagnosis, engine disassembly, component cleaning, inspection, crack detection and repair, component reconditioning and cylinder head and block resurfacing.
This program is an online, self-paced course with up to one year to complete. The book, Automotive Machining & Engine Repair by Gary Lewis, will be included with the registration fee and will be used as a syllabus when not online. Everything a technician will need is contained in the program with video clips and supplemental readings at key locations within the program.
