Applied Electronics Micro-Credentials

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. 

Applied Electronics for Manufacturing Assemblers

Upon completion of this micro-credential, students will be able to understand and apply electrical quantities and their measurement, DC circuits, AC circuits, magnetism and basic instrumentation and electrical power. They will demonstrate the use of electrical and mechanical equipment and instrumentation, and construct a CAD generated circuit board demonstrating the skills of bread boarding, soldering, crimping, heat shrinking, wiring, and mounting jacks, controls and switches.

This is designed to be a stackable micro-credential as a beginning Micro-credential. The next step would be the Applied Electronics for Manufacturing Technicians and then the Electrical Technology-Electronics AAS program.
