Senior and Master Certifications
ETA Certification offers higher-level certifications for technicians who exhibit exceptional skill in their field(s). These are for technicians with six or more years of experience who want to show their dedication to their profession and value to their employer/customers.
A technician with six or more years of combined work and electronics training may apply for the Senior level certification. To be a Senior Certified Electronics Technician (CETsr), an entire certification exam must be passed (which consists of the Associate level exam plus one of the specialized Journeyman options). This exam deals with advanced practice and theory applicable to the electronics specialty selected. The applicant must score at least 85% on the Journeyman portion to pass.
The Senior level certification is intended for, but not limited to, the professional electronics service technicians, technician-managers, consultants, and electronics educators who have been active in the industry for six or more years.
*If an applicant is awarded a Senior Certified Electronics Technician (CETsr) after taking a regular Journeyman exam based on score and six years of experience/schooling, then they are issued only a paper certificate - plaques are an additional $75.
**Senior upgrades must be done within the first year of certification.
A technician with six or more years combined work and electronics training may be eligible for the ETA Master Certified Electronics Technician (CETma) certification. The Master certification was created to showcase those technicians who are able to demonstrate proficiency in the many fields of electronics. In addition to the Associate level certification, one must successfully obtain six other certifications, with no more than two originating from the same specialized category, in order to qualify. All certifications must be current. Passing score on all ETA exams is 75% or higher.
The Master level certification is designed for, but not limited to, professional electronics service technicians, technician-managers, consultants and electronics educators. This is the highest level of ETA certification available.
*Please note: Other restrictions may apply. Please refer to the Master CET chart for specific information on ETA’s CETma program.
