The Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP) Council announced the release of the Employer and Labor Provider Recognition Programs. These programs have been initiated to recognize employers who utilize ETCP Certified Technicians, as well as labor providers who provide ETCP Certified Technicians to job sites. Employers and labor providers who sign the best practices agreement will also agree to encourage their employees and workforce to become ETCP Certified Technicians. Organizations who agree to these best practices show a commitment to the enhancement of safety and reduction of risk in the workplace in our industry.

Many organizations will find ETCP Recognition and the ETCP logo to be effective marketing tools. ETCP Recognized Employers may utilize the special ETCP Recognized logo, which identifies them as an “Employer of ETCP Certified Technicians.” ETCP Recognized Labor Providers may utilize the special ETCP Recognized logo, which identifies them as a “Provider of ETCP Certified Technicians.” These logos may be used on company letterhead, on a website, and in advertising materials.

Organizations receiving ETCP Recognition will be listed on the ETCP website along with contact information as well as a link to the organization's website.

Organizations interested in becoming ETCP Recognized can complete and return the appropriate Best Practices Agreement. The guidelines and application form are available online at http://etcp.esta.org. To have the information mailed or emailed to you, please contact Katie Geraghty, ETCP Certification Director, at 212-244-1505 or kgeraghty@esta.org with your contact information.
