Certification: Certified Journeyman Electronics Technician

5 Depot Street, Greencastle, IN 46135

The Journeyman program offers extended, stackable certification tracks for the advanced electronics professional. The Journeyman CET program is broken down into five parts:

Basic Electronics - The Associate CET (CETa) and Electronics Modules (EM1-5) are the basis for the Journeyman CET program. You must have one to proceed to the Journeyman level. These certifications make sure a professional has a good understanding of common concepts such as AC, DC, analog, and digital.
Journeyman Option (CET) - Once the CETa or EM1-5 is obtained, a professional chooses their specialty area. The option can come from the Biomedical, Communications, Fiber Optics, Information Technology, Smart Home, and other popular technical areas. A Journeyman should have two or more years of experience to qualify as a Journeyman CET.
Senior CET (CETsr) - A Senior CET is a professional who has more than six years of experience and scores 85% or higher on the Journeyman option of their choice. These professionals are well-rounded in their career choice.
Master Specialty CET (CETms) - A Master Specialty CET is a specialized CET who excels in the area of Fiber Optics, Information Technology, RF Communications, or Telecommunications. These professionals must have six certifications, and at least four certifications must be in their chosen specialty category.
Master CET (CETma) - A Master CET is the highest level offered by ETA. These professionals have six or more years of experience like the Senior CET, but they must pass six Journeyman CET options with no more than two (three for RF) originating from the same specialized category on the available Master CET chart. These individuals are the crème de la crème of professionals!
