Master Specialty (CETms) Designation
With the increase of specialization in all areas of technology, the board of ETA International has proposed, discussed, and approved a new Master Specialty class of CET certification effective July 1, 2017. Please refer to the Master Specialty chart for specific information on ETA’s CETms program. Other restrictions may apply.
The ETA Certified Electronics Technician Master Specialty (CETms) certification is designed for any professional in a specific field of electronics. The CETms is a maintainable certification, and all certifications must not be expired at the time the Master Specialty certification is requested. Each Master Specialty will receive a new certificate and wallet card.
How Do I Earn A Master Specialty Designation?
To earn the Master Specialty, an individual must have six or more years combined electronics training and/or work experience, as well as having earned an Associate CET (CETa). An individual must also have at least four of the six certifications in his/her specialty category of choice (Fiber Optics, Information Technology, RF Communications, or Telecommunications). Two of the six certifications may come from any other Journeyman-level certification field, or all six certifications may come from the specialty category of choice. Other categories will be listed as they become Master Specialty eligible. Individuals can acquire a Master Specialty certification in each category!
Master Specialty CETs must continue to maintain the individual certifications that make up their Master Specialty CET. In many cases, current certifications are required by employers. All certifications contained within the Master CETms must be maintained to stay valid. The Master Specialty CET is accredited by the International Certification Accreditation Council (ICAC).
Those who earn the requisite certifications, and have the training and/or work experience, will be automatically upgraded to the CETms after the July 1, 2017 date. If you earned the requisite number of certifications before July 1, 2017, then you are able to upgrade for a fee.
