The Associate Certified Electronics Technician (CETa) is designed for encompassing the basic electronics theory and applications used in all electronics disciplines including electrical theory, test equipment, circuits, telecommunications basics, and work procedures. By doing so, the Associate is the foundation for ETA’s journeyman, senior, and master specialty, and master certification programs. The CETa is designed for technicians having less than two years’ experience or training in electronics. The CETa also has an optional hands-on component that can be used as a part of the training process and will be noted upon completion and passing of the CETa examination. Once a technician has completed the four year term, they should specialize and take a Journeyman option.
The Associate exam is HALF PRICE if taken with a Journeyman certification at the same time!
If you hold a CertTEC BEE certification with all four modules current, then you are eligible to rollover to an ETA Associate Electronics Technician certification! To apply, you must fill out the rollover form, and send a copy of your BEE certificate showing all four modules checked and up-to-date to ETA via fax (765) 653-4287 or email. CETa rollovers are $65.
