Electronic Security Networking Technician (ESNT)

The ESNT was developed for technicians who have gained knowledge and skills needed to properly cable, connect, install, program and troubleshoot IP-enabled security devices onto local area networks and the Internet. This certification is an acknowledgement of the examinee’s familiarization and understanding of the hardware and theory of operation of this medium. It is a stand-alone certification that can also be used as a Journeyman option.

If you hold a Stand-Alone ESNT and later complete the Associate CET (CETa), then you are eligible to upgrade to a Journeyman CET!
