ESA/NTS has made some major strides this past month in having its fire and CEU courses approved by several regulatory agencies.

The Montana Department of Labor & Industry has approved ESA/NTS’s Certified Fire Alarm Technician (CFAT) Level II Fire certification to meet the standards of licensure for the fire protection program, allowing ESA/NTS’s Level II Fire certification to be an alternative to NICET certification in Montana. Visit to learn more about the  CFAT certification, and the other certifications offered.

New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs approved many of the online courses ESA/NTS offers for continuing education credits. The approvals include ESA’s CEU courses and the more in-depth online courses, including Electronic Access Control, Video System Technologies, Residential Fire Alarms and more. The North Carolina Alarm Licensing Board provided authorization for many of the online CEU courses that ESA/NTS launched in fall of 2015 to be used toward renewing a North Carolina alarm license.
