The Electronic Systems Professional Alliance (ESPA) announced that Vermont Technical College has signed on to offer ESPA’s curriculum and certification program as an authorized training partner.
The Technology Extension Division at Vermont Technical College provides customized training and workforce development in leadership and technical areas, which aligns with ESPA’s mission of building a foundation for a career ready workforce.
“We look forward to our new relationship with ESPA. We are working to incorporate the ESPA curriculum and principles into an existing program in Digital Home Technology and the students are excited by the industry credibility the ESPA EST certification will provide,” said Jay Paterson, director at Vermont Technical College.
ESPA certification provides a gateway to a variety of career paths in the electronic systems industry including residential and commercial AV, security, and IT. ESPA and Vermont Technical College will be documenting student’s experiences as they go through the program on the ESPA website, espa.org.
“Vermont Technical College is one of many schools that ESPA has been working with to implement the ESPA curriculum and certification. We are pleased that Vermont Technical College has become an early adopter,” said Kerry Moyer, ESPA chairman of the board. “This is just one example in which ESPA curriculum enhances and integrates well into existing training programs.”
ESPA authorized training partners receive numerous benefits including discounts on training module books, free online pre-test assessment, and instructor resources. In addition, scholarships are available to students pursuing a career in the electronic systems industry through the NSCA Education Foundation. The scholarship covers the cost of the ESPA Certification exam.
