New Modules At WRE

1.  Introduction to Certification -  There are literally dozens of certification organizations specializing in electronics. Most electronic technology students and graduates do not know about certification and its benefits. This module introduces you to certification, outlines the many positive rewards, summarizes the most popular certifications and their sources, and suggests ways to prepare for certification exams.

2.  Systems View of Electronics -  Today, the greater part of a tech's work now deals with a higher level. Specifically, he or she works more with larger PCBs containing many ICs, plug-in modules, subassemblies, and complete pieces of equipment, and entire systems as well as their power and cabling. The technician's work is at a higher level. The focus is on signal flow through the system and testing the system to see that it meets specific standards. Rarely does the tech replace individual components as was once the case. This module presents an overview of how a technician should view electronic equipment and systems today and an approach to understanding their operation and troubleshooting.

3.  Data Acquisition -  Data acquisition systems are very widely used in industry process control, manufacturing, factory automation, testing centers, and research labs. As an electronic technician or engineer, you are very likely to encounter a data acquisition system in your work. This module provides an introduction and overview of data acquisition systems.
