Want to conduct annual inspections on your fleet or for carriers requesting this service?
First, your mechanic(s) needs to be qualified. Although Michigan requires some mechanics to be state certified, this does not mean they are automatically qualified to perform a periodic inspection.
MTA’s exclusive  Periodic Inspection Training (PIT) class meets the FMCSR Part §396.19 requirement that individuals are qualified to perform commercial motor vehicle periodic (annual) inspections if they successfully complete a state-sponsored training program.
Discussions focus on:
  • Understanding inspection criteria for required parts and accessories;

  • Reviewing 49 CFR, Appendix A minimum periodic inspection standards;

  • Comparing North American Uniform Vehicle Inspection Procedures and 49 CFR, Appendix A;

  • Contrasting CVSA Out-of-Service-Criteria with the FMCSA Annual Inspection;

  • Understanding annual periodic inspection paperwork.

Provided materials:
  • Exclusive MTA Periodic Inspection Training Manual;

  • Links to the most current Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations;

  • CVSA Out-of-Service Criteria Reference Guide;

  • Proof of participant's completion of state-sponsored training;

  • Participant certificate of completion.
