Course Description:
The Electronics Technician Certificate distance education program provides flexible, skills-based training in basic electronics. It has been developed for adult learners pursuing basic technician level training through independent study, specifically students who cannot attend college full-time because of work or family commitments. No electronics background is required and there are no academic prerequisites, so anyone can get training in this rapidly-growing industry.

The program covers an introductory curriculum in electronics equivalent to a two-year college diploma. Contents of the program includes Current, Voltage, Resistance, Ohm's Law, Parallel and Series Circuits, Magnetism, AC/DC Circuits Capacitance, Inductance, Transformers, Resonance, Filters, Transistors, Semiconductors, Amplifiers, Op Amps, and Digital Electronics.

The DVD or USB-based multimedia program presents 23 modules of interactive curriculum using text, video, 2D and 3D animations, photos, audio clips, and interactive lab simulations. Pretests, interactive exercises, sample exams, and online support prepare you for computer-based final exams. The average completion time of the 23 training modules is 230 hours or 32 weeks. Instructional materials may be purchased for an additional fee when registering. You may also register for individual modules;
