The U.S. Department of Labor classifies the Electronic Systems Technician (EST) as one of the fastest growing professions in
North America. Yet, out of the hundreds of thousands of workers in our industry, only tens of thousands are certified, according to industry experts.
A 10% certification rate has many risky short- and long-term implications for our industry. And, with products and installation requirements getting more complicated every year, the need for certified technicians continues to increase.
Plan for the economic recovery and make sure the industry uses certified technicians when business is booming again.
Although a relatively new industry, experts estimate that electronic systems contractors have generated more than $20 billion in sales each year. Yet, u
nqualified technicians can cause your business to mismanage project timelines, overrun cost estimates, and, most importantly, lose time and money. By endorsing technician certification, you can:
Enhance your business and the industry’s
reputation and professionalism
Improve installations with fewer repeat service calls.
Complete jobs more quickly
Reduce workforce turnover
Increase customer satisfaction
