Radio Club of America and ETA International Sign Partnership Agreement
RCA and the Electronic Technicians Association International (ETA) jointly announce that the two organizations have signed a memorandum of understanding of partnership to provide improved benefits to their members. Members of ETA will be able to join RCA at a reduced rate, and vice-versa. Each organization will list the other’s meetings and events on their respective websites.
ETA provides industry-recognized certifications for its members with career training from approved providers. RCA members who join ETA will be able to avail themselves of those services. RCA has a presence at many wireless industry events, and ETA members who join RCA will be able to participate in those events, including the all-day Technical Symposium at RCA’s annual meeting in November.
“The Radio Club of America has embarked on an initiative to partner with a number of critical and prestigious organizations in the wireless industry, thanks to the efforts of Director John Facella. Our first partnership is with ETA International, which is well known in our industry for providing vital training and credentialing to technical personnel who keep wireless working. This partnership is very much in synchrony with RCA’s other education efforts: getting youth interested in wireless through amateur radio, our college scholarship program, and the professional engineering continuing education training provided at our Technical Symposium,” said Tim Duffy, 2016 RCA President.
“ETA is pleased to partner with the Radio Club of America” said Teresa Maher, ETA President. “Both of our organizations are committed to the education of our members to ensure that they have the up-to date skills and certifications vitally needed in the constantly evolving wireless industry.”
Since 1978, ETA has delivered over 200,000 professional certifications. ETA certifications are widely recognized and frequently used in worker job selection, hiring processes, pay increases, advancements, and often required as companies bid on contracts. ETA’s certifications are personal and travel with the individual, regardless of employment or status change and measure competencies of persons, not products or vendors. All ETA certifications are accredited through the International Certification Accreditation Council (ICAC) and align with the ISO-17024 standard. For more information, visit www.eta-i.org.
