DALLAS - March 3, 2014 - PRLog -- DALLAS – Ron Widup, Shermco CEO, and Jim White, director of training for Shermco, have long been go-to experts for the electrical industry, sitting on numerous non-profit organization boards, writing trade articles, and helping develop electrical safety and maintenance standards for many years. Recently they joined a group of industry experts in the development of a Certified Electrical Safety Compliance Professionalprogram to be administered by the National Fire Protection Association.

The CESCP certification program consists of a set of eligibility requirements (completed prior to program application), a 100 question computer-based examination (with a retest process in the event the exam is not passed), and a set of recertification requirements (based on a points system) that must be completed within a three year time period following initial certification. The goal for the program is to assure that managers in the electrical business have a good working knowledge of the NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.

White and Widup were among the first group to complete the requirements, becoming charter members of the program.

“We highly recommend participating in, and ultimately being certified as a CESP, for any manager or personnel that have electrical work or workers as part of their job responsibility, for the safety of your team and the benefit to your organization,” said Widup.

The CESCP program application form is found in the CESCP candidate handbook as well as online at An applicant has 12 months to take and pass the exam from the day the CESCP program application is accepted by the NFPA.
