Press Release – Sutphen Corporation

DUBLIN, OHIOFor the second year in a row, Sutphen Corporation, the largest family-owned fire apparatus manufacturer in the nation, will offer an expansive courseload of Emergency Vehicle Technician (EVT) classes while also proctoring the EVT Certification Commission’s national exams directly following classes.

In 2023, the Sutphen Service and Technical Division, located in Urbana, Ohio, will host EVT courses and exams in its state-of-the-art training and classroom facility. The classes range from beginner EVT F1 courses to highly skilled EVT F8 courses.

“We started the program in 2021 after hearing feedback from customers wanting to expand their knowledge and further support their technicians,” said Janelle Kizer, Sutphen’s training manager. “We have the unique opportunity of offering courses and then proctoring national certification exams directly after a class. This is a chance for technicians to grow in their craft while learning from master EVTs and board-certified trainers who work at one of the largest first apparatus manufacturers in the nation.”

Sutphen’s blend of immersive hands-on training and interactive classroom sessions prepare students for the national boards and real-world applications.

Since the program started in January 2021, Sutphen-trained students have passed the EVT Certification Commission’s national exams with a perfect 100 percent pass rate on all Sutphen-proctored exams.

“Sutphen’s training courses prepared me for real-world scenarios and everyday applications,” said Adam Herold, master EVT lead technician for the Atascocita Fire Department located in Harris County, Texas. “I take what I learned during my courses and apply it to our fleet every day. I would recommend Sutphen’s training and maintenance classes to anyone looking to further their knowledge and make an impact on their fleet’s maintenance.”

Classes are typically taught over a three-day period with proctored exams available on the third day.

Attendees are responsible to register and pay for exams with the EVT Certification Commission.

You do not need to be a Sutphen customer to register for an EVT class. EVT classes are taught for all emergency vehicle technicians, not just those who work on Sutphen fire apparatus.
