All three ETCP examinations will be given at the 2010 LDI show in Las Vegas in October. The entertainment electrician exam is scheduled for Friday, October 21, the arena rigging exam is to be given the morning of Saturday, October 22, and the theatre rigging exam is scheduled for that afternoon. Candidates who wish to take multiple exams will receive a discount for the second exam. Interested applicants must submit their application, along with supporting materials and fee, to the ETCP office no later than September 30. Space is limited.

Candidate information, including eligibility requirements and applications, is available on the ETCP website, or if you would like the information mailed to you, email Meredith Moseley-Bennett, ETCP Certification Manager or call 212-244-1505. Rigging examinations are also given daily at more than 190 computer-based testing centers across the US and Canada.
