Are you ready for an electronics career helping others get the message?

When you complete the Certificate IV in Electronics and Communications you'll be well on your way to a career as an electronic technician.

You will gain the practical skills and knowledge to assemble, test, maintain, and troubleshoot a range of electronic components and devices. You will develop your skills to fault-find power supplies, amplifiers, communications systems, digital and microcontroller systems. You will write and test programs to control external devices, and utilise workplace health and safety and sustainability practices.

This is a WA priority skills course so lower tuition fees apply and employment prospects are higher.

Dual qualification: at the Thornlie and Rockingham campuses a second qualification in A132 UEE40111 Certificate IV in Computer Systems may be readily achieved as many units are common to both qualifications. Ask about this exciting option.
