At HVTA, we’d like to see every eligible on-the-job trained technician study for and successfully pass the VTNE. To help, we are hosting guided study sessions with credentialed technicians. There will be a small fee involved – $5 for HVTA members and $10 for non-members.
We will continue these study sessions on a year-long cycle until grandfathering closes in 2021.
