And thanks to companies such as System Sensor, St. Charles, Ill., which donated more than 20 smoke detectors to the NSCA, technicians worked with operational equipment during the hands-on portion of the test.
Test stations wired with numerous electronic connections and components served to verify the practical knowledge of the more than 100 technicians who took the certified electronic systems technician (C-EST) exam at the show, held in March in Las Vegas. The test stations will be put to use at subsequent C-EST exams, which will be conducted in cities across the U.S. throughout 2004. (Visit www.nsca.org for more information about C-EST exam dates.)
