Technician Certification Pricing

These are the current certification program applications and related fees, which have been approved by the EGSA Board of Directors.  

PLEASE NOTE: Most items have a $10 handling and shipping charge within the USA.  The Technician Certification program is professionally managed for EGSA by an independent authority, Ferris State University, and they should be contacted for shipping charges outside the USA.

EGSA members enjoy significant cost savings over non-members when paying Certification related fees. In fact, the savings could well pay for your membership!  Membership information and applications are available on our Membership Page.

APPLICANTS AND ONLY APPLICANTS can cancel their scheduled participation in the testing process, and must do so in writing, subject to the following timelines:

  • 30+ Days - Applicants who cancel their participation 30 days or more in advance of their scheduled test may do so without penalty. Applicants who cancel during this period will have the option of having their fees refunded in full or applied to a future test.
  • 29 days or less - Applicants who cancel their participation 29 days or less before their scheduled exam will not receive a refund.

The agency conducting the test will not cancel a scheduled exam unless an act of nature makes it impossible to conduct the test. Tests cancelled for this reason will be rescheduled. Applicants who were scheduled for that exam will have the option of receiving a full refund or applying the fees to a future test.
