This program has been discontinued and is no longer accepting new students. Please consider one of our other great Business & Technical Programs.


The Electronics Technology Certificate (ETC) at Jefferson College is provided through a Department of Labor TAACCCT Grant.  This opportunity is available for a limited time. 

The ETC coursework offers many opportunities to gain valuable skills and credentials. In addition, it allows participants the flexibility to jump into industry-related work and/or continue on their educational pathway.  Completion of the ETC program provides the potential to move forward to an A.A.S. and B.S.

Industry recognized credentials that individuals have the opportunity to earn include:

  • ETA DC Basics Certification
  • ETA AC Basics Certification
  • ETA Analog Basics Certification

Separate costs for the above certifications/exams apply.

Graduates of this program can expect to find employment as electrical technicians, i.e., technicians who install, troubleshoot, repair, service, and maintain electrical control systems in manufacturing and service facilities. Technicians who are employed by equipment manufacturers assist in designing, manufacturing, and testing of the electrical control systems of automated machines. Students in the Electronics Technology program will gain first-hand experience with these technologies.

Electronics Technicians have excellent opportunities for advancement.  After earning an Electronics Technology Certificate, graduates may earn jobs with one of our employer partners as entry level electronics technicians, electronics equipment installers, and maintenance technicians.

Electronics Technicians who continue their education will obtain an Associate of Applied Science degree in Electronics Technology and the opportunity to advance into positions such as industrial electricians, industrial robotics technicians, electrical engineering technicians, and electrical service technicians.

Those interested in health care can apply their Electronics Technology Certificate toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in Biomedical Electronics Technology and obtain technical positions that support modern health care; these include biomedical equipment technicians and medical equipment repairers.

Students that wish to continue their education beyond Jefferson College can earn a Bachelor of Science in Applied Management from Missouri Baptist University. General education courses taken within the Electronics Technology degree plan may transfer to other institutions. These technicians are given managerial responsibilities working as service managers, production managers, and project managers.

Students with industry certifications, military training, non-credit coursework, and on-the-job experience* can request Credit for Prior Learning.
*Credit is not granted for experience, but for college-level learning that has been gained from experience.
