Alachua, Fla. — NCCER has revised its Electronic Systems Technician (EST) Level Four curriculum to cover the most recent technologies and products available to ESTs. NCCER has also added a new module to the curriculum, Residential and Commercial Building Networks, and the revision includes two separate training pathways for credentialing: one for voice and data and another for life safety and security.

NCCER’s EST curriculum is aligned with benchmarks for industry recognition, including coverage of the core learning competencies fire alarm systems technicians need to earn National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) certification. EST Level Four is also endorsed by the Satellite Broadcasting Contractors Association (SBCA) for training in support of its Satellite Fundamentals, Home Theater Fundamentals, and MDU/SMATV certifications.

Students successfully completing Electronic Systems Technician (EST) Level Four through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor will earn industry-recognized credentials verifiable through the NCCER Automated National Registry.

NCCER worked with subject matter experts representing industry and academia across the country to introduce relevant industry topics. For more information on NCCER curriculum, visit
