ETA has partnered with ExamRoom.AI for non-hands-on certification remote proctoring. To take a remotely-proctored ETA certification exam through ExamRoom.AI, all remote examinees must have a working web cam and microphone.
The only way to use ExamRoom.AI remote proctoring is by registering for your examination using the Remote Proctoring Examinee Registration Form. You cannot contact ExamRoom.AI directly and have your examination prepared through ETA International. ExamRoom.AI is the certification examination administrator to proctor the exam. ETA must register and set up your certification examination.
* Initial scheduling takes up to 72 hours and registration is available Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm EDT. Registering for same or next day testing is not guaranteed.
** Please note that examinees who wish to have their examinations proctored remotely via ExamRoom.AI must pay an additional remote proctoring fee of $14 for a two-hour exam, and $18 for a three-hour exam. ETA will still offer a free retake for all eligible certification exams but the examinee must pay the ExamRoom.AI fee.

Please download the latest competencies to make sure you are up-to-date on current industry standards and practices.
ETA® International’s current Distributed Antenna System (DAS) certification, originally released in 2013, will become all-inclusive in order to cover public safety two-way radio FCC rules, along with fire and building code compliance as well as user needs, system design, component selection, component integration, installation, optimization, testing, and maintenance. The expanded ETA public safety DAS certification program will now cover the material required of professionals whose work can affect millions of people where their safety is at risk, along with the hundreds of thousands of first responders who also depend upon these systems to work correctly.
Improper design, installation, and commissioning will result in harmful interference or even tragic loss of lives. The FCC will levy major fines if these DAS cause harmful interference per 47CFR90.219. Current building codes require all new and retro-fitted buildings to be energy efficient, but these efficiencies can severely disrupt radio frequency communications. All buildings are required to have a DAS capable of providing public safety personnel (police, fire, and emergency medical responders) with reliable communications between themselves and their dispatchers and other officials.
The current ETA DAS certification will be expanded into four separate disciplines that will include:
Qualified to lead the aerospace workforce, ETA® International-certified Fiber Optics Evaluation and Endface Cleaning (FEEC) professionals have validated knowledge and skills required for working with fiber optics in the aerospace industry. The FEEC defines general practices for testing the physical layer of a fiber optic cable system and outlines proven practices for engineers and technicians engaged in testing and supporting fiber optic cable systems in aircraft.
Ideal for technicians working towards careers in aerospace fiber optics, the FEEC is widely accepted by the aerospace industry and also used in other high-reliability sectors. The FEEC provides guidelines for continuous improvement to help manufacturers and suppliers remain compliant with industry standards and deliver reliable high-speed data transmission in durable and lightweight construction that customers demand. Technicians must have certified knowledge and skills necessary to install and maintain fiber optics that can withstand the harsh and challenging environments that fiber optics encounter throughout an aircraft's service life.
