eSET - Essential Skills for Entertainment Technicians In case you hadn't heard or seen, the first of the eSET exams are online now - Rigging, Lighting and Electrics and Costuming. eSET is like ETCP for "emerging professionals" and "novice employees". It is a certification program. For more information head to http://www.usitt.org/eset/. There is a Basic Terms & Safety exam that has to be taken before any other exam. It's free. Then any subject exam is $40. The cost of the online exam includes a practical exam as well. Right now the practical will launch at USITT in Salt Lake City in March. There's a neat terminology app available for download for Apple devices at the iTunes store (eSET by USITT). One for Droid will be available soon. Would love to hear when someone gets certified!
