Electronics Technician

Certificate of Completion

About the Program

The Electronics Technician four-term certificate program is designed for students seeking entry-level electronics technician positions in manufacturing or service industries. The program emphasizes theory fundamentals, practical troubleshooting, and basic electronics design as well as general studies courses. Technical courses involve extensive lab work using industry standard test equipment and practices.

This program will help students gain skills for entry into one of today’s most dynamic and broad-based technical fields. Typical occupations include those of field engineers in business or communications fields, or line/maintenance technicians at manufacturing sites. Electronics training also provides excellent positioning for lateral movement into areas such as technical sales or technical writing.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for the Electronics Technician Certificate of Completion are:

  • Identify and solve real-world problems through the application of electronics theory and concepts.
  • Calibrate, test, and repair analog and digital circuitry at the component and circuit level using industry standard test equipment.
  • Organize, interpret, and use technical information and documentation.
  • Communicate effectively across a variety of audiences: technicians, engineers, management and customers.
  • Function collaboratively as a member of a team to achieve specified and measurable results.
  • Demonstrate flexibility, adaptability, and time management skills commensurate with industry productivity needs.
  • Demonstrate the ability to adhere to personal and industry safety standards.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and the Electronics Technology Department chair’s recommendation. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over three years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements. Official transcripts must be filed with the Enrollment Services office and the Electronics Technology Department.

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their certificates. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate. Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
