ESPA Certified EST Qualification

by Nyal Mellor March 18, 2013

ESPA Certified EST Qualification

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:

  • 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.
