New Jersey's new enhanced Inspection and Maintenance
(I/M) program, any person or facility shall not perform
emission-related repairs for compensation of any kind,
unless the repairs are made by, or under the supervision
of, a certified repair technician employed by the facility.
Accordingly, the State has established the ETEP program
to set forth the requirements necessary to become a
certified Emission Repair Technician in New Jersey.
ETEP program contains two separate options, or tracks,
for obtaining certification. The Test Track requires
possession of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)
A6, A8, A9 and L1 certifications, while the Education
Track requires successful completion of a State-approved
ETEP training curriculum. Both tracks also require
attendance at the New Jersey Specific Informational
Course or the New Jersey Inspector Training Course.
The courses are offered only by a network of NJ-approved
ETEP Training Providers. To download the current list of
NJ-Approved ETEP Training Providers, please click

completing at least one of the tracks in its entirety,
an application must be filled out & submitted for
the State to issue the certification. To download this application and accompanying ASE Status Verification process, please click the links below:
