CESCPNFPA is pleased to announce the new Certified Electrical Safety Compliance Professional (CESCP) certification program, created to encourage electrical safety within the industry. The program is based on NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, 2012 Edition, which sets requirements for safe work practices to protect personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards. 

The CESCP certification program consists of a set of eligibility requirements, a 100 question computer-based examination, and a set of recertification requirements that must be completed within a three (3) year time period following initial certification. 

Program application forms can be found in the CESCP candidate handbook as well as online at www.nfpa.org/cescp. Participants have twelve (12) months after they are accepted as a CESCP applicant to take and pass the exam.  Once you become CESCP certified, you must recertify every three (3) years.
