The Entertainment Technician Certification Program Council is proud to announce that twenty-eight certifications were awarded today to members of IATSE Local 873.

Local 873 made a commitment to becoming the IATSE Local with the most certified technicians in North America, and they have achieved this goal. Bob Daprato, who sits on the Executive Board of Local 873, arranged for the paper and pencil exams to take place, and says, "I couldn't be more proud of my brothers who took the exams and all their hard work is evident in the results. I am excited that we have achieved our goal of most certified technicians in an IATSE local in North America."
