Benefits of Membership

Since 1983, SCESTA has represented the most respected providers of fire, burglar and security related systems. SCESTA is committed to the success of all its members and to the increase of professionalism in the security field. Through networking, training, seminars and up-to-date industry standards, we seek to raise the bar for the entire group.

Your SCESTA Board continues to work diligently on the legislative front as we push for laws and regulations that benefit our members, the alarm industry and the consumer of our state. Our efforts include defending against burdensome regulation and legislation that could be detrimental to us and the industry.

SCESTA Member Benefits:
  • Board of Directors - The SCESTA Board of Directors works for you and is made up of 13 members of the association, which represent all aspects of the electronic systems industry. They meet several times a year, at their own expense, to discuss legislative and local issues that affect alarm dealers across the State of South Carolina. Board members are nominated and elected at the annual meeting in the fall of each year. All members are encouraged to step up and serve on our board of directors.
  • NTS Level I Course Options and Pricing - The SCESTA offers an in-person 22 hour NTS Level I course throughout the state several times a year. This course is required for burglar and fire alarm licensing in South Carolina. We offer the course at discounted rate ($350) for members.

The management group, Capitol Consultants, also sends out procurement opportunities issued by the State of South Carolina.
