What Does an EST Do?
ESTs install, upgrade, and service a variety of residential and commercial electronic systems including:
- Audio/Video Systems
- Computer Networking
- Control Systems
- Security and Surveillance
- Cable & Satellite TV
- Green Technologies
It’s no surprise that ESTs are in high demand in today’s technology driven workforce. In fact, a recent survey* of residential home technology professionals indicates that most companies expect to expand their staff by about 14% over the next year. Since this type of work must be performed on site, there’s no fear of these types of jobs being outsourced.
Through online training, self review, or as a student at a technical school, ESPA Certified EST’s gain a foundation of knowledge that prepares them for a wide variety of industries and career paths. Unlike many careers, this same “basic training” can lead to several different employment destinations, all of which are dynamic and constantly evolving. There are many exciting opportunities for advancement including:
