Default Briggs MST

how many guys have re-certified with the Briggs MST so far since they threw out the old certs and put the test online?

What is the purpose of the MST and what does it do for the dealer?

I have just done the update seminar on line to keep mine current. For the average dealer it is very good training. Diamond dealers must have one on staff.

I thought they said you had to retake it if you had not done so since it went online last year.

Finished mine last week. Made good scores on three of the tests, the two I thought would be easiest, I had trouble with. Took one of them a second tome to bring up my score.

let me guess your hard ones were diagnostics and theory right? Those seemed to be the hardest for me.

Believe it or not, Repower was the toughest for me. Also, maybe it's just me, but I had a hard time finding some of the videos that I needed.

I found that the "study guide" is not exactly accurate, meaning that the content of the videos do not cover every question in the corresponding exam. I am not sure why, or how to solve this problem from our end but I think Briggs could do a bit to fix that. Add videos or modify the questions accordingly.

I found that one easy, it was the diagnostics I had to study for. I think it has to do what what you do at the shop I used to do a lot of replacement engines. I also found I was trying to over think the Diagnostics test.
