Electronics Schools

Individuals interested in pursuing a career in electronics may likely need formal education and training to fully understand the products and services they will be working with. Examples of workplaces where electronics professionals might find employment at include repair and service shops, manufacturing companies, research laboratories, and local and federal government agencies.

Duties that electronics professionals are expected to perform can vary depending on their exact job role and educational background, but may include things like installation of electronic devices, maintenance and repair using software testing, and providing cost estimates for clients.

Many organizations offer electronics certification programs for those who want to prove their worth to potential employers, including The Electronics Technicians Association International and the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2012).

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the mean annual national wage of electrical and electronics installation and repair careers was $46,890 in May 2011. Exact wages depend on an individual’s job title, training and education, as well as the location where he/she resides and works.
