A NETA Certified Level III test technician is capable of supervising ETT Trainee Level I and ETT Assistant Level II individuals.
ETT certified technicians are "hands-on" field testing technicians and shall be trained concerning the hazards, components, nominal voltages, operating characteristics, and limitations of electrical power and electrical power systems.
Typical duties include, but are not limited to, performance and management of routine and moderately complex tasks and projects, record keeping, evaluation of test data, and responsibility for the safety of others. Individuals are qualified to provide guidance and is capable of performing electrical power switching.
Individuals are expected to have have knowledge in applied mathematics, physical science, and engineering science equivalent to that provided by course work and hands-on laboratory work of an associate degree program in electrical engineering technology. A degree is not a requirement for certification.
NETA requires candidates to have a minimum of five years of full-time experience in the electrical testing industry, a minimum of 24 hours of additional documented safety training, and 240 hours of additional documented training related to the certification elements categories listed in this guide.
This experience will have to be verified by your employer by using a form similar to the one found in Appendix A of ANSI/NETA ETT-2010. Individuals must also pass an Electrical Testing Level II examination administered by a certifying body as defined in the standard.
