About Apple Certified Mac Technician 2017

Apple Certified Macintosh Technician 2017 (ACMT) is latest version of the official Apple course and certification for all engineers who want to repair Apple Macs. ACMT itself is a four-day course, but in order to take the course, you need to have passed the Apple Service Fundamentals exam, so we have bundled both courses together. You can find out a little more about the content of both courses below. You need to take both, so we don’t offer them separately.

The course is a mixture of leader-led theory with comprehensive and extensive hands-on practicals, including take-apart sessions on the latest Apple desktop and portable hardware.

Important: The ACMT certification by itself does not allow a technician to order Apple parts. Apple parts are ordered via the GSX system, which only AASP’s and Self Certified Repair centres have access to. Information on becoming authorized for servicing Apple products can be found here.


Some basic knowledge of using a computer (macOS preferred)

If you’re in any doubt about your suitability for this course, please call our training pros on 020 8645 5806 who will be pleased to discuss your training needs in more detail.

Who should seek ACMT certification?

ACMT certification is intended for:

  • Technicians employed by an Apple Store, Apple Authorised Service Provider (AASP) or Self Servicing Account (SSA)
  • Persons motivated to demonstrate their knowledge of technician-level service and support skills
  • For persons not employed by Apple directly or by an AASP or SSA, attaining ACMT certification verifies skills and knowledge that may be sought by a prospective employer, such as an Apple Reseller or a self-servicing entity like a school

The 2 exams which will be taken to get you ACMT Certified are: SVC-17A and MAC-17A
