Production Resource Group (PRG) has donated $100,000 toward the development of a new Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP) by the Entertainment Services & Technology Association (ESTA). The workplace safety program is an ESTA initiative aimed at creating safer working conditions in the entertainment industry and reducing workplace accidents through training, examination, and certification of entertainment industry technicians.

With its donation, PRG joins Clear Channel Entertainment, the IATSE, and the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) in contributing at the Executive Producer level, the highest contribution level for the ETCP, thus bringing the total pledge amount to the ETCP to over $600,000.
