Electronics Service Technicians

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If you are considering a career as an electronics service technician, you can begin preparing while still in high school by taking as many science and mathematics courses as possible. At minimum, you should take algebra, geometry, physics, and chemistry. Other useful classes are English, communications, applied mathematics, computer science, and shop classes. Shop classes that teach the basics of electricity and the use of hand tools and provide an introduction to electronic measurement devices and testing equipment are especially helpful. English and communications classes help provide you with the language skills you will need to read electronics texts and manuals comfortably and to express yourself well when making spoken and written proposals.
