The Electronic Systems Professional Alliance builds the foundation for a career-ready technology workforce. As a professional-based organization, ESPA represents technicians -- the workers that are installing, maintaining, and upgrading 21st century technology. The ESPA Certified-EST and the accompanying curricula set the standard for entry-level ESTs. The ESPA Certified-EST provides a set of fundamental best practices common across all tech markets -- structured wiring, distributed audio and video, satellite, theater rooms, lighting, security and life safety systems and automation controls. ESPA Certified-EST covers five key domains: electrical basics; tools; construction methods and materials; wiring and installation practices; and standards, codes and safety practices.
