Welcome! NETA invites you to learn more about what it takes to become a NETA Certified Electrical Testing Technician.
NETA Certified Technicians represent the American National Standards published by NETA: the ANSI/NETA ATS, ANSI/NETA MTS, ANSI/NETA ECS, and ANSI/NETA ETT. Each is paramount to understanding the roles and responsibilities of a NETA Certified Technician and their duties as a representative of the NETA Accredited Company supporting them in the field.
A prospective NETA Certified Technician is first hired by a NETA Accredited Company. Then, when prepared, they sit for the NETA Certification Exam. Once the exam has been passed, the technician becomes certified as a NETA Level 2 Certified Assistant Technician. They may elect to sit for other NETA Certification Exams in the future, and advance their careers further at Levels 3 or 4.
Studying for the NETA Certification Exams is something that takes place on the job, as well as in a NETA Accredited Company's training classrooms and study groups. NETA Certification is based on practical knowledge and field experience, as well as the understanding of industry standards and electrical and physical theories. However, there are resources available to continue education and preparation for certification.
