Please view the new ETCP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the ETCP home page (http://etcp.esta.org) to gain even more information on the benefits to the careers of electricians and riggers, as well as our industry. The FAQs also answer specific questions about the examinations. As always, if you would like more information or would like eligibility requirements or applications sent to you, please contact Katie Geraghty, ETCP Certification Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-244-1505.
Examinations will be held in October 2006 in Las Vegas, NV in conjunction with the LDI tradeshow. The electrical certifications are designed for highly experienced electricians (including leads, supervisors, and managers of entertainment electrical work). The rigging certifications are designed for highly experienced riggers (rigging supervisors, high steel riggers, fly-persons, etc). Candidates must meet eligibility requirements.
It is vital to ETCP that both the development process and the examinations themselves are professionally sound. The ETCP Council appointed these highly regarded subject matter experts (SMEs) to work with a firm contracted for psychometric (testing and measurement) services: Rick Baxter, Eric Bouchard, Jeanette Farmer, Ian Foulds, David Hatch, John Huntington, Tony Giovannetti, Dave Loftin, Jim Maloney, Alan Rowe, Nancy Shaw, and Ken Vannice (Chair).
The ETCP Council members are key leaders drawn from entertainment business, labor, facilities, associations, and academia representing the diversity of the entertainment industry. Membership includes AMPTP, CITT, ESTA, IAAM, IATSE, InfoComm, The League, Live Nation, PRG, TEA, and USITT.
