Choose to Succeed
We represent technicians – the workers that are installing, maintaining, and upgrading 21st century technology.
Electronic systems technicians (ESTs) constitute one of the fastest growing professions in North America, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. We help technicians like you build successful careers.
Commit to life-long learning to manage a career full of constantly changing technologies and job opportunities. ESPA certification provides the foundation for ESTs in residential and commercial A/V, computers, lighting, automation controls, security, telecom, cable, satellite, and green technologies. Schools are integrating the ESPA program into their curricula to help their students gain the critical skills needed for the 21st century.
Prepping the Next Generation of ESTs
Our first-ever survey of seasoned ESTs and their views of their careers and training, found several important factors, including the need for schools to do a better job of priming the EST workforce pipeline.
Most alarming, less then 2% cited a teacher or course in school as their primary motivation for beginning a career in the electronics industry.
How can we inspire students to pursue a technology-based career if they don’t have the teachers or programs in school that motivate them to pursue 21st century jobs?
