Hi tuners! Quick question... I received a business card that said NEC certified today from a tuner. It's driving me crazy trying to figure out what NEC is. Does anyone know?

NEC (yes, New England Conservatory) used to have a piano technology program, some great techs came through there. (Ahem.)

That makes sense, I kept getting a link to NEC but couldn't find anything on the tech program! Anyhow the tuner did a great job. I was just curious. The other people I came across were trained at the North Bennett St School in Boston. Thanks!
