The state of Indiana does not require that vehicles be inspected for safety or emissions to be operated legally; however, the counties of Lake and Porter do require emissions testing to be performed on all vehicles, every two years. For mechanics seeking an automotive technician job an excellent way to build a resume of valuable skills is to seek out an inspection certification, or an Indiana Certified Emission Repair Technician.

Indiana Certified Emission Repair Technician (ICERT) Qualifications

In order to work at an Indiana Certified Emissions Repair Facility, or location where emissions testing takes place, a mechanic needs to become an ICERT. This certification is provided by Clean Air Car Check, a third-party organization that provides all training, certification, and supervision of emissions tests in Indiana. In order to receive this certification in Lake and Porter Counties, Indiana, an automotive service technician needs to have the following qualifications:

  • The technician must have completed a 60-hour training course. These are held once per year during an eight-week period in the spring. In order to learn more about training locations and registration, a technician must contact Clean Air Car Check at 219-661-8269.

  • The technician must have a minimum of ASE L1 certification, and must maintain this certification in order for their ICERT certification to remain valid.

Emissions Testing Procedure in Indiana

During an emissions test in Lake and Porter Counties, Indiana, the following procedures will take place:

  • The gas cap pressure will be checked to ensure that the cap is secured tightly.

  • The OBD-II test will be performed to check the vehicle’s emission control equipment functions.

  • An inspection and maintenance test (I/M 93) will be used to test emissions for all vehicles manufactured in the years 1981 through the current year.

  • A single idle speed test (BAR 90) will be used to test vehicles older than 1980.

All emissions testing procedures take about ten minutes.
