Electronics Service Technicians
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, 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.
