The Electrical Testing Technician Certification Institute (ETTCI), Kalamazoo, Mich., is now accepting applications from individuals wishing to obtain recognition as certified electrical testing technicians and assistant technicians. In order to ensure compliance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Washington, D.C., and InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA), Portage, Mich., standard for certification of electrical testing technicians (ETT), ETTCI requested that NETA review ETTCI’s program requirements. NETA completed this review on January 11 and found that ETTCI meets the requirements set forth in the ANSI/NETA ETT.
ETTCI offers four levels of recognition: Level I Trainee, Level II Assistant, Level III Certified Test Technician, and Level IV Certified Senior Test Technician. Levels III and IV are the only levels considered to be fully certified and capable of performing and supervising electrical testing work. Both Levels I and II should work under the supervision of a Level III Certified Test Technician or Level IV Senior Certified Test Technician.
To assure the end-user of qualified testing personnel, ETTCI Level III and IV Certified Test Technicians must further develop their knowledge and skills by meeting ETTCI’s continuing education credit requirements on an ongoing basis.
