The Bakersfield College Electronics Certificate program will show the world that you have gained the necessary knowledge and skills to perform better on the job. This program of study is widely recognized and modeled after local industry competency standards. A certified electronic professional often appears more dedicated, more skilled and thus more attractive to prospective employers. Program includes study in the following areas: Electrical theory and components, soldering, wiring diagrams, safety, advanced analog semiconductor and digital devices, power supplies, test equipment, programmable logic controllers, Allen Bradly SLC500 and CLX 5000 Instrumentation, temperature, pressure, level detectors, radio communications, antenna and transmission lines, telecommunications, video, data, network technology,motor theory and wiring, computer integrated manufacturing,installation and wiring standards, and mechanical systems.Career opportunities in Electronics Technology include entry level positions in petroleum/energy, manufacturing automation,instrumentation/process control, logistics and distribution,ancillary services, telecommunications, radio communications,food and materials processing, and industrial maintenance.
The ELET COA allows students stack-able completion of certificates that lead to medium wage earnings.
The Electronics Technology Certificate of Achievement is designed to prepare students for optimal success in technical careers. This program teaches essential skills that can be put to use as an industrial technician, electronics technician, field service representative, or salesperson. A certificate holder will also be considered for potential promotions into supervision and management positions. They will also become valuable additions to technology-focused employers. Teaching and learning strategies will include student-centered, competency-based, and hands-on instruction.
