NICET Drafts CCTV Certification Program

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A certification program for contractors and installers in the CCTV industry is nearly ready.  The specifics of the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies’ (NICET) Video Security Systems certification program have now been posted on the Web for review.

The program –  supported by the Security Industry Association (SIA), the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) and the PSA Security Network – is designed to give industry professionals an opportunity to be up to speed on the correct way to install systems. Levels of certification are being established for video security designers and video security technicians.

“The intention was to deal with the problem of bad installations by bad installers,” says Brian Gifford, NICET manager of certification development. “Bad installations are costing companies. We want to improve the reputation of the industry so no one sees poor work being done.”

NICET is seeking the input of installers and designers of fixed-camera video security systems with more than six months of experience to participate in a survey to determine whether the program’s content is an accurate reflection of CCTV industry practice.
