ETCP offers three certification programs, Rigger-Arena, Rigger-Theatre, and Entertainment Electrician. Candidate information including eligibility requirements, application forms and deadlines, are available on the ETCP website. The electrical certification is designed for highly experienced entertainment 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.). Individuals must meet eligibility requirements to apply. Many certified technicians have already found their certification has helped them get jobs, as employers are beginning to request ETCP Certified Technicians and requirements for certification are being written into collective bargaining agreements.
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 PLASA, Actsafe, AMPTP, Broadway Across America, The Broadway League, Cirque du Soleil / MGM MIRAGE, CITT, Disney Theatrical Productions, IATSE, IAVM, InfoComm, Live Nation, NBC Universal, PRG, TEA, and USITT. ETCP was an ESTA initiative created to promote industry safety.
