ETCP Announces Exam Administrations at USITT 2007

The ETCP Council is pleased to announce the electrical, arena rigging, and theatre rigging examinations will be offered at the USITT Conference and Stage Expo on March 17, 2007 in Phoenix, AZ. Those who pass these rigorous tests will become ETCP Certified - and will be recognized as the industry’s best. Employers have already begun seeing the benefits of ETCP Certification in reduced insurance rates as well as attaining more work because their services are being performed by certified personnel.

If you would like to take the arena rigging, theatre rigging, or electrical examination at USITT, please submit your completed application, including all supporting documents and fee, postmarked on or before February 1, 2007.

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 or 212-244-1505. Complete information is also available on the ETCP website:

If you are unable to attend USITT, you can apply to take an examination at a testing center near you. The arena rigging and theatre rigging examinations are now offered at over 150 testing centers in the U.S. and Canada on most business days. The electrical exam will also be available at these centers beginning February 15, 2007. For these exams, information will be sent on how to schedule the examination after the candidate is accepted by ETCP.

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).

The ETCP Council members are key leaders drawn from entertainment business, labor, facilities, associations, and academia representing the diversity of the entertainment industry. Members include AMPTP, CITT, ESTA, IAAM, IATSE, InfoComm, The League, Live Nation, PRG, TEA, and USITT.
