ETA ASSOCIATE CERTIFIED ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN TEST TRAINING
This course gives students the knowledge they need to qualify as entry- level technicians, and provides the necessary foundation for further studies in specialized fields. Is is closely coordinated with the ETA competencies and exams.
This course is divided in 5 units. Unit 1: Basic Electrical Theory.
•Basic Electrical Safety
•Series & Parallel Circuits
•Battery Power Supplies
Unit 2: AC Basics.
AC vs DC, including frequency, period, wavelength
•Waves and wave forms
•AC test equipment, with emphasis on oscilloscope functions
Digital concepts: analog vs. digital, decimal vs. binar
•Binary arithmetic, including octal and hex notation
•Other logic functions: bit manipulation, shifting, flip-flop etc.
•Digital electronic circuitry and issues such as gate delay, race states
•Microprocessors, micro controllers, PLAs
•Machine control, servo loops, PID, PLC
•Mixed digital/analog, D-A and A-D converters
•Basic digital signal processing
•Digital generation of analog wave forms
•Servicing digital equipment
Unit 5: Comprehensive Study and Laboratory.
This unit will prepare the student for the Associate Certified Electronics Technician test offered by The Electronics Technician Association (ETA).
ETA is accredited by the International Certification Accreditation Council (ICAC). ICAC is an alliance of organizations dedicated to assuring competency,
professional management, and service to the public by encouraging and setting standards for licensing, certification, and credentialing programs.
Laboratory include the programming and use of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's), Oscilloscope, Multi-meter, soldering and more.
This is an intensive course. Completion time is three months.
