ETCP is waiving the administration free for organizations that will offer the ETCP paper and pencil certification exams this September. They‚Äôve created new questions for the Theatre Rigger exam, and in order to get enough statistical data to properly score the exam, they need as many candidates as possible to take the exam in September. They will provide a proctor and waive the $675 test administration fee for any company that can get a group of 10 or more candidates to take the exam.
ADMINISTRATION FEE WAIVED FOR ORGANIZATIONS OFFERING ETCP PAPER AND PENCIL EXAMS IN THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER
In order to keep the ETCP examinations fresh and current, the Subject Matter Experts have written new questions for the Theatre Rigging examination. ETCP is set to launch these questions September 1, 2012.¬†¬† To gather the statistical data necessary to properly score the exam, it is essential that as many Theatre Riggers as possible are tested during the month of September.¬† To further this initiative, the test administration fee of $675 for groups of ten or more will be waived for the month of September.¬† Candidate application fees will still apply and score reports will be delayed during this time.
A new test form was also created for Arena Rigging and will be launched July 1. Registered candidates and those interested in applying can assist in gathering data for these exams by testing at one of the 190 computer-based testing centers during that month.
ETCP will send a proctor to you, but space must be provided by your organization.¬† You can find a list of testing requirements at:¬† http://etcp.plasa.org/onsiteexams_September_Theatre_Promotion.html.¬† Test administration requests must be received 5 weeks prior to the exam date, and candidate application deadlines will be set by the Certification Manager.¬† Candidates must fill out the ‚ÄúPre-arranged Paper and Pencil Application Form,‚ÄĚ available on the website.
