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.

The U.S. Department of Education requires disclosure of specific information about career and
technical certificate programs to prospective students. Data includes Standard Occupational
Classification (SOC) codes, graduation rates, tuition and fees, typical costs for books and supplies,
job placement rates for students completing the programs, and median loan debt incurred by students
completing the programs. For more information visit www.roguecc.edu/GainfulEmployment.

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 by the results of their placement assessment.  In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Students are also required to complete any prerequisites listed.


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.
