Applied Electronics for Manufacturing Assemblers


The Southern Tier has roughly 450 manufacturers employing 19 percent of the total workforce with a payroll that approaches $2 billion a year. There is a significant and immediate need for Electrical Assemblers for many of the area manufacturers. Employers are interested in credentialed employees.

Stackable to Degree Program

These micro-credentials align with requirements for the Electrical Technology-Electronics A.A.S. should students choose to continue their education after obtaining the micro-credential. 

This micro-credential is 8 credits and is comprised of the following courses:
