Master Burglar Alarm Technician (MBAT)

The requirements of the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) for this rigorous credential required the applicant to demonstrate six (6) years of comprehensive experience in the alarm industry before one could be qualified by the Metro-Dade County Licensing Board to sit and test for the written journeyman examination credential; followed by a two (2) year waiting period, before the applicant could be qualified by the licensing board to sit for the Master Burglar Alarm Technician’s written testing examination. If I successfully passed, certification, and licensure would be attained.

However, based on being able to demonstrate his specialized education, skill, knowledge, training, and experience in the alarm industry to the board, and his test scores, the (AHJ) authority having jurisdiction made a unique exception for Jeff, and waived the two year waiting requirement [between Journeyman and Master] so that he was duly qualified to be able to sit for the Master Burglar Alarm Technicians Testing examination. Jeff successfully passed both written examinations on the first attempt.
