ESPA Certified EST Qualification

by ct_acoustic_frontier July 06, 2022

What it is

 />The Electronic Systems Professional Alliance (ESPA) exists to maintain and develop an entry-level certification program for low voltage Electronic Systems Technicians (ESTs). The curriculum covers five key areas:
	<li><span class=Electrical basics
  • Tools
  • Construction methods and materials
  • Wiring and installation practices
  • Standards, codes, and safety practices
  •   Participants must pass an independently proctored test in order to gain the ESPA certified EST qualification. Nyal Mellor, our founder, first took the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Electronic System Technician Basic Residential Boot Camp training before committing to further study for the ESPA exam.

    Your takeaway

    The qualification shows that 'we know the basics' in terms of safely and properly pulling, terminating and testing cabling in the home theaters we design and build.

Part of the challenge of understanding room correction is that it requires a reasonable level of understanding of sound quality, acoustic science, acoustic measurement and psychoacoustics (how humans perceive sound). The majority of the articles I have read online or in print magazines do not cover the fundamentals in enough depth to allow the curious and committed reader a chance to understand room correction on anything more than a cursory level. By the end of this article I hope that you will have learnt enough to judge for yourself what room correction can and cannot do and how best to apply it in the context of a world class music or home theater system.
