So in doubles, I know that if a move that hits multiple Pokemon it has its power lowered to 75%. If a move has (for example) 75 base power, it will be lowered to about 56 base power.

Will, when the power is reduced, the Technician bonus then trigger, or is the Technician ability triggered before the move hits multiple pokemon?

No, Technician does not affect anything with a Base Power higher than 60. In a double battle, a move hitting multiple target has its damage lowered by 25%, but its Base Power is unchanged. Thus, Technician does not affect a move that would drop to an effective power of 60 or less due to the damage reduction in double battles.
