Career opportunities

After completion of the theoretical part of the National Certificate at level 6, the student will be employed as a learner technician for the period determined by the employer - a minimum of 24 months. After completion of the training period, the student may be appointed as a technician.

People working in the electronics engineering fields require specialised technical skills and knowledge in order to meet the requirements of continually changing environment of the various industrial sectors. Students will acquire the technical knowledge and skills that are required in small and medium businesses as well as provide access and mobility into higher-level more specialised occupations.

Qualifying learning at N6 should be able to find employment in the sectors below:

  • Radio and TV Technician
  • Technician: Office Equipment, Photocopier and Fax machine
  • Telecommunications Technician
  • Instrumentation Technician
  • Domestic Appliance Technician
  • Cellphone Repairs
  • Car Radio installation
  • TV & Aerial Installation


Comprehensive eBooks and Associated Documentation

In addition to the course fee, you will need to purchase textbooks for most subjects in the program. Included with the course fee you will receive four of our up-to-date technical eBooks to add to your library. All together, these reference books contain hundreds of pages of valuable know-how distilled from years of experience in presenting technical training throughout the world.

  • Fundamentals of Industrial Electronics
  • Practical Process Control
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Best Practice in Industrial Data Communications

How can an e-learning course be interactive?

Boredom can be a real danger, however, we use an interactive approach to our e-Learning – with live sessions instead of recordings.  The webinar software allows everyone to interact and involves participants in group work; including hands-on exercises with simulation software and remote laboratories where possible.  You can communicate with text messages, or live VoIP speech, or can even draw on the whiteboard during the sessions.
