Looking for Training?

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(6) trade association, ETA does not provide its own training. However, ETA partners with many reputable trainers and schools across the globe to help ensure professionals are prepared to take certifications exams. This list is voluntary and by no means exhaustive. If you can't find what you are looking for, contact ETA for more suggestions. As a reminder, ETA offers a free competency for each certification that shows what you need to know for the examination. These are listed in the certification's information box to the right of each certification description.

Those organizations that offer ETA hands-on certification training must have a course approval in order to offer the certification. This includes review of course materials, instructor resumes, facilities, and equipment. ETA has a network of more than 600 Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in place to assist with these course and text reviews. Are you looking for an ETA-Approved school near you?

Do you provide training related to ETA certifications and would like to be listed? Send ETA (eta@etai.org) your logo and a brief description (200 words or less) describing your company/school and services.
