Overview

This comprehensive and finely-focused guide explains what it means to be - and to become - an electronics technician in the late 1990s. It describes the role of an electronics technician, explains how to prepare to become an electronics technician (with a complete discussion of the preparation necessary to succeed), and tells how to secure that first electronics technician job. Written in an appealing, conversational style, Becoming an Electronics Technician: Securing Your High-Tech Future, Second Edition, provides the history and background of this exciting field; a survey of the general occupations and people who make up the industry; an overview as well as specifics of the electronics technician's career, with hard data on what technicians do, what they are paid, and where they work; in-depth interviews with electronics technicians on what it's like to work in this field; and a discussion of what it takes to "make it" through the course work involved - whether the goal is a certificate, an associate degree, or a 4-year degree.
