Employers have already begun using the website when seeking qualified personnel. Recent surveys show that employers want an objective tool that helps them assess riggers' skills. ETCP Certification provides that tool, helping employers immediately identify riggers with proven capabilities. ETCP helps the riggers themselves by giving them a credential – ETCP Certified – that unmistakably says, "I know what I am doing."
The certification examinations are now available at centers throughout the U.S. and Canada for qualified riggers. View these testing sites online, as well as obtain candidate information, including eligibility requirements, application forms, and deadlines, at http://etcp.esta.org.
If you would like the examination information and application forms mailed to you, please contact Katie Geraghty, ETCP Certification Director, at 212-244-1505 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.
The rigging certifications are designed for highly experienced riggers (rigging supervisors, high steel riggers, flypersons, etc). Qualified riggers can apply for either one or both exams. Individuals must meet eligibility requirements to apply for the exam(s).
