Program will go live in 2020

The National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) and the Safer Buildings Coalition will initiate development of a new engineering technician certification program for Emergency Responder Radio Communication Systems (ERRCS), with expected launch of the program in 2020.

 The Safer Buildings Coalition has long recognized the importance of such a program, and SBC approached NICET earlier in 2019 to develop and implement this credentialing program because NICET has a strong reputation within the life-safety industry for quality certification programs.  This collaboration between NICET and the Safer Buildings Coalition is expected to quickly establish the value and credibility of proper training and certification with the goal of increasing competency across all industry stakeholders.

NICET and SBC have begun to recruit Subject Matter Experts from among industry stakeholders to assist with each stage of the program development process. Development of the program will continue through early 2020; with launch of the Level I and Level II exams expected in late 2020.
