Electronics Technology Lab Equipment
Electronics Technology with Lab (course 1B) contains 93 lessons with over 200 hands-on training experiments using CIE's Personal Training Laboratory and Multimeter. You can take your exams online with our e-grade site or simply mail them in to us.
This program was created specifically for the distance learning student. Experience a step-by-step method of learning that allows you to complete each lesson at your own pace when it's convenient for you!
Lab equipment and instructor support are included with tuition. Our instruction staff works directly with you one-on-one to answer your questions and provide you with technical assistance when needed - even if it's on a Saturday!
Earn an Accredited Diploma
Students graduate with a Nationally Accredited Diploma in Electronics and are readily employable as electronics technicians.
They may continue their education with CIE and receive full academic and tuition credit that can be applied towards CIE's more advanced programs like courses 11, 14B, and the A.A.S. Degree Program. In fact, this course contains 33 credit hours towards CIE's accredited Associate Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology.
CET Exam Preparation
Electronics Technology with Lab also includes a study guide on how to prepare for the Associate-Level Certified Electronics Technician (CET) exam.
This test is administered by the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians and has over 46,000 certified technicians across the globe! Certification enables employers to separate knowledgeable job applicants from those with less training and skills.
CIE has an open enrollment policy and you can start this program at anytime.
One of the advantages of enrolling with CIE is that you can study at your own pace. Some students go through the program slowly, others at an accelerated level, but on average most students complete about two lessons a week.
We can accommodate almost any arrangement that suits you best and with our generous time allotment of 24 months for Course 1B you can be assured to have enough time to complete your program.
