2023marksthe10thanniversarysinceETA’sDistributedAntenna Systems (DAS) certification was first created. DAS technologies can be used for indoor locations--mainly to boost signal coverage in large buildings, stadiums, and shopping malls, as well as for outdoor purposes. A DAS network consists of many localized antennas tuned to precisely match the areas within a building or venue where boosted service is needed.
The Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) certification covers basic knowledge concepts of distributed antenna systems and antenna installation, including ERCES (Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement Systems) public safety DAS concepts, and BDAs (Bi-directional Amplifiers). The DAS certification also incorporates service and skills applicable to all of the functions required to safely and completely install, maintain, troubleshoot, and support in-building distributed antenna systems and communications and electronic equipment. Standards supported include, but are not limited to:
• National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
• International Fire Code (IFC) - part of the International
Code Council® (ICC)
• Underwriters Laboratories® (UL)
Anyone certified and working in DAS must adhere to AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) enforcement of standards and local provisions. First responders and cellular users depend on DAS certified personnel. For more information on ETA’s DAS certification, please visit
