The ETCP Council has voted to extend the application deadline to February 9, 2007 for all three exams being offered at USITT: Entertainment Electrician, Arena Rigging, and Theatre Rigging. Space is limited, so submit your application today! Those who pass these rigorous tests will become ETCP Certified and recognized as the industry’s best.

If you’re a rigger or an electrician, get ready to show the industry what you know. Examinations will be held March 17, 2007 in conjunction with the USITT Conference and Stage Expo in Phoenix, AZ. 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).

If you apply and are accepted to sit for the exam but end up with a last minute job, you have up to one year to take the exam at a computer testing center or at another paper and pencil administration.

Candidate information, including eligibility requirements and applications, is available on the ETCP website, or if you would like the information mailed to you, please contact Cathy Amos, ETCP Certification Coordinator, at 212-244-1505 or .
