Hunterdon County Polytech Adult & Continuing Education now offering Emission Technician Education Program (ETEP) Courses

Hunterdon County Polytech is an official training center for the New Jersey Motor Vehicle State Emission Technician Education Program (ETEP).  Under New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection and the Inspection and Maintenance Program, “a person or facility performing emission-related repairs for any type of compensation must be made by a certified repair technician that is employed by that facility”. Technicians must be re-certified every five (5) years by a state-approved ETEP training curriculum.  For current certifications that are ready to expire, Polytech is offering training for recently incorporated sections 8, 9 & 10 this June.

  • Section 8, Advanced Gasoline Technologies, 16 hours:  June 1st, 3rd, 8th, 10th, and 15th from 6-10pm.  Tuition is $300 per student, including books.
  • Section 9, Advanced Light Duty Diesel Technologies, 8 hours:  June 17th and 22nd from 6-10pm.  Tuition is $200 per student, including books.
  • Section 10, Hybrid/Electric Technologies, 8 hours:  June 24th and 29th from 6-10pm.  Tuition is $200 per student, including books.

The tuition cost for all three courses is $700, however, you can save $120 by enrolling in all three (3) sections at the same time for a total of $580, including books, a savings of over 15%.  All classes will be taught at our Central Campus, 10 Junction Road in Flemington.

For those interested in becoming a certified emissions technician, Polytech will offer an 80-hour course in the fall incorporating sections 1 through 7 which covers Electronics, OBDI & II, Diagnosing and Repairing OBD II Monitoring Failures, and Light-Duty Diesel Vehicle Technologies and Testing.
