HDMI and SBCA Join ESPA for Installer Education
Faster than George Steinbrenner during free agent season, the Electronic Systems Professional Alliance (ESPA) is signing up valuable players for its entry-level education and certification effort. On the heels of its agreements with CompTIA and Tweeter Home Entertainment Group, ESPA has now added the Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association (SBCA) and HDMI Licensing, LLC.
That brings to seven the number of organizations supporting the cooperative effort, including founding members Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) and the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA).
The goal for the group is to develop a universal education and certification program to serve as the foundation of a career-ready workforce of “electronic systems” contractors, as ESPA calls them.
