Why Earn ESA/NTS Certifications?
Certifications provide noticeable acknowledgment of your core
skills and knowledge — they validate your abilities to customers,
supervisors, peers, and potential employers.
Not all certifications are equal. To distinguish yourself from your
competitors, you need a certification that encourages professional growth and
is recognized by the industry as the standard.

MAINTAINING
CERTIFICATIONS
All ESA/NTS certifications are valid for a period of 24
months following the completion of a course of study.
Certification is maintained through attendance at
industry-related continuing education activities.
Maintaining ESA/NTS certifications requires certificate holders to
earn 24 continuing education units/hours (CEUs) — the equivalent of
24 classroom hours — each renewal cycle.
Continuing Education
It is the responsibility of each
certification holder to maintain records
documenting qualified continuing
education credits, report their credits
on the ESA/NTS Certification Renewal
Form, and submit the form and the
applicable processing fee to ESA/NTS at
the time of renewal.
CEUs must be taken within the
24-month period from renewal date
to renewal expiration date and cannot
carry over to subsequent years.
Lapsed Certifications
Persons who do not maintain their
certification lose the privilege of using
the designation. A certification is
considered lapsed once the expiry date
has passed. Lapsed certifications may
be renewed as follows:
Qualifying Activities
Programs covering the electronic life safety
and security industry are eligible for ESA/NTS
CEUs. The following activities may qualify:
ESA/NTS courses
Training Sessions, Educational Workshops
or Seminars
College/University/Trade School courses
Industry Related Expos
Online/Distance Learning courses
Job Safety Training
Teaching NTS Courses
ESA/NTS Course and Program
Development
Active Committee Task Force Service
Electronic Life Safety and Security
Industry Certifications
If certification was lapsed for less
than 24 months, individuals will be
required to submit 24 CEUs (or 24
classroom hours) and the renewal
fee for the lapsed renewal cycle.
