USA - The Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP) will launch a practice exam for the Portable Power Distribution Technician certification examination on 1 April 2017. The web-based practice exam will consist of 50 questions is available from that date forward for $40 at etcp.esta.org/practiceexams. Candidates should go to the ‘Candidates’ link and then follow the menu to ETCP and choose this exam.
The ETCP Council understands that there is a certain amount of fear surrounding the exams because many candidates have not taken an exam in quite some time and/or may be unfamiliar with computer-based testing. The 50-question practice exam will provide candidates with a valuable tool for self-assessment. There is no application process with the practice exam; so any interested candidate will be able to take the exam privately at home, at the office or on the road whenever it is most convenient for him or her. Candidates have 30 days to complete the exam.
“I speak with candidates every day who are intimidated by this exam,” said Meredith Moseley-Bennett, the ETCP certification manager. “Our hope is that the candidates who opt to take the practice exam will go into the actual exam feeling more comfortable and confident because they have gotten a general sense of the exam beforehand.
“Since the practice exam is exactly one-third of the test questions of the final exam, the candidates can time themselves for one hour to make sure they are answering the questions within the proper time-frame. At the end of the practice exam, candidates will be provided with a score report that is divided into the broad areas of the content outline which will help them get a sense of the areas that need more attention.”
