About the Council
The Certification Council,
which is the governing body for ETCP, marks
an unprecedented alliance of leaders representing
all facets of the entertainment technology
At the core of the Council are the industry
organizations whose presence ensures their
members' voices will
be heard during the development process, and their involvement is an invaluable resource as the program continues to grow.
Representing potential candidates,
those who employ them, and those in whose facilities
they work, these organizations have embraced the
benefits that personnel certification can bring
to our industry. It was also critical to the process
that large employers be seated at the table.
These currently include Cirque du Soleil, Disney Theatrical, NBC Universal, and Production Resource Group.
Representing the Electrical
and Rigging Subject Matter Experts on the
Council are the Chairs of these groups, all highly
respected authorities in their fields. Bringing
additional viewpoints and leadership skills to
the Council are individuals appointed for their
experience in a wide range of areas including
program development, marketing and fundraising,
legal issues, and training.
