Are you looking for career in electronics?
North Metropolitan TAFE is offering a dual qualification in Electronics and Computer Assembly and Repair. You can gain the Certificate II in Computer Assembly and Repair and the Certificate II in Electronics qualifications in just six months, opening doors to many different fields of further study and/or employment.
In this course you will develop the ability to select components and assemble computers to customer specifications. You will also learn how to carry out routine hardware repairs (generally by replacement) of known faulty components.
Successful completion of this dual qualification could lead to an apprenticeship or employment as a technician’s trade assistant in a wide variety of electronic fields such as computer assembly and servicing, refrigeration and air conditioning, telecommunications, and security and fire alarms. Many employers regard basic training in electrical/electronic theory as a pre-requisite to employment.
We will be offering the dual qualification at both our East Perth and Midland campuses starting in Semester 2.
It will provide an entry point for the electronics, robotic, and electrical industries. It will also prepare you for possible further study in Semester 1 2021, in courses such as the Certificate IV in Robotics, or the Certificate IV Electronics and Communications.
You will need to have some math ability, particularly in relation to Ohms Law, and be motivated to finish the course in a short time.
Many of the subjects in this fast track program will cover off subjects in a Certificate II Electrotechnology (Career Start).
