Technician Proxies can review and approve seat checks for recertification. This is not associated in any way with being a Senior Checker. It is simply a way to fill a need in areas with few Certified Instructors. Once approved as a Technician Proxy, you will remain one until your CPS Certification expires.
Anyone who has been a Certified Technician for at least six months, or is an Instructor Candidate, may apply to be a Technician Proxy. When you are eligible to apply, you will see the action item "Apply to be A Technician Proxy" in your CPS Online Profile.
Once approved, your status will continue to be "Certified Technician" but you will see Extra Training: Technician Proxy in your Online Profile.
