What Is an SAE Certification?

An SAE certification proves that you are a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers. This certification demonstrates a competency in specified aspects of automotive engineering.

The Society of Automotive Engineers offers many certification programs for training in specific fields, such as diesel technology, electrical and lightning protection, transmission and drivetrain, and vehicle dynamics. Each program addresses the topic's background, risk factors, costs and solutions, and it ends with a certification examination created by industry professionals. Most courses last one calendar week, with a class total of 5 to 6 courses. SAE standards are used to ensure the safety and quality of products across the engineering industry.
