The objective of the work described in this report was to develop a written and practical test for emission laboratory technicians as part of the EPA program for the certification of emission laboratories which conduct the EPA regulatory test. Olson Laboratories was assisted in the written test development by a technical review panel consisting of experienced representatives from the automobile manufacturers and independent laboratories. The panel assisted in the preparation of the task analysis, writing the test items, and item analysis. In addition to the written examination, a practical test was developed consisting of both a manipulative and oral test.
