The Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP) will launch a practice exam for the Portable Power Distribution Technician certification examination on April 1, 2017. The web-based practice exam will consist of fifty questions is available from that date forward for forty dollars at etcp.esta.org/practiceexams. Candidates should go to the “Candidates” link and then follow the menu to ETCP and choose this exam.
The ETCP Council understands that there is a certain amount of fear surrounding the exams because many candidates have not taken an exam in quite some time and/or may be unfamiliar with computer-based testing. The fifty-question practice exam will provide candidates with a valuable tool for self assessment. There is no application process with the practice exam; so any interested candidate will be able to take the exam privately at home, at the office or on the road whenever it is most convenient for him or her. Candidates have 30 days to complete the exam.
The ETCP Council members are key leaders drawn from entertainment business, labor, facilities, associations, and academia representing the diversity of the entertainment industry. Membership includes ESTA, AMPTP, Cirque du Soleil, CITT, Disney Theatrical Productions, IAVM, IATSE, InfoComm, The League, Live Nation, NBC Universal, PRG, PSAV, TEA, and USITT. ETCP is an ESTA initiative created to promote industry safety.
Don't forget that the TTF can reimburse you for the full cost of the ETCP exam once you pass! Read more about the program and download an application here.
