Benefits of becoming an ETCP Recognized Trainer and/or teaching an ETCP Recognized Course

  • ETCP Certified Technicians will receive twice as many renewal credits, making your course
    more attractive
  • You’ll gain more exposure: approved trainers are listed on the website with contact information. Programs and providers are listed on the ETCP website with a dedicated page including logo, contact information, and training details
  • Courses submitted to ETCP will be listed in The ETCP Certifiable News, our quarterly newsletter.

ETCP Recognized Online Courses
ETCP Recognized Programs and Providers may apply to have their online courses recognized. If you are interested in providing online training, please see Guidelines for ETCP Recognized Online Training (PDF).

Practice Examinations
Instructors may offer a preview of the practice exams during their training. For $40, you may purchase a Practice Exam, which will be available for 30 days. We request that you provide a licensing fee (PDF) of $15 per student and you may subtract the $40 purchase fee from your total.

Trainer Recognition

ETCP Trainer Recognition recognizes experienced instructors that meet specific criteria. ETCP Recognition is for renewal credits only.

You should apply to become an ETCP Recognized Trainer if:

  • You are an experienced trainer who is ETCP Certified.
  • You teach courses to a variety of audiences and adjust your curriculum to suit different audiences.

Note: If your training is conducted solely as in-house training for an individual company, you will need to apply for Training Program or Training Provider Recognition.

How much does it cost?

  • There is a one-time fee of $250, and Recognized status is subject to review by the ETCP Disciplinary Committee should there be a valid complaint.
