Institute of International Container Lessors (IICL)

The IICL has developed container and chassis inspection examination programs to further promote important industry wide matters of proper inspection, repair, maintenance and operational issues. This competency can be used as a foundation for continuing their education process in the industry with the potential for them to move on to more specialized industry related issues. The exams test the student's understanding of the technical aspects and the complexities of maintaining and operating various equipment types.

The IICL Container and Chassis Inspector Certification Examinations are computer based examinations provided at numerous proctored test centers around the world. Each exam will consist of 100 multiple-choice questions in English. Individuals who pass either of the IICL inspection examinations will have an industry-recognized level of competency. The certification is valid for five years after which an inspector must pass the examination to become re-certified.

While self study of selected manuals and technical bulletins are required, the IICL also offers training classes that can supplement the student’s industry knowledge and assist in preparation for the exams.
