Engineering, R&D and Test Center Support Services

We provide the same full suite technical support services at our clients' test and engineering facilities as we do at the proving grounds. Typically these programs involve closer team integration, with client project engineers providing greater real time technical direction - a necessity due to the earlier stage in the product development cycle. Structured as a managed service and continuing to take advantage of our comprehensive HR, safety and training expertise, these programs provide the convenience and flexibility needed by engineering project managers.

Advanced Driver Training Program

Our Advanced Driver Training Program offers a suite of courses for professional drivers and for automotive related companies. The courses can be tailored for companies utilizing test drivers involved in vehicle design, manufacture, research and development. Proving grounds’ and vehicle test facilities’ standards of proficiency require certified competence levels in order to operate and safely validate all aspects of a vehicle’s life cycle performance. With our focus on both the human element and the vehicle’s dynamics, participants acquire not simply the techniques to drive safely at an advanced level but also gain a clear understanding of how the physical characteristics of the vehicle (both static and dynamic) affect driver performance.

SAE J3300 Certification

In partnership with Eaton Corp's Marshal Michigan proving ground, Technical Professionals Group and Eaton are proud to be the first in achieving Site and Examiner certification for the SAE J3300 driving skills standard. The SAE's standard creates a common and industry-wide recognized credentialing process allowing authorized sites and examiners to certify professional drivers in various levels of driving skills. The standard was developed to provide consistency among and between the industry's multiple proving grounds and other testing facilities, each of whom had developed their own requirements which had to be met individually before allowing drivers access to their respective sites.
