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.
A technician with six or more years of combined work and electronics training is eligible for the Senior level certification. To be a Senior Certified Electronics Technician (CETsr), an entire certification exam must be passed (which consists of the exam plus one of the specialized journeyman options). The Associate CET must be taken first for the senior status to be awarded automatically. The applicant must score at least 85% on the Journeyman portion to qualify for Senior designation. The Senior designation will be awarded automatically to those who meet the above requirements.
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 you hold a Standalone certification that also qualifies as a Journeyman option, and would like to attain Senior status, then then you may upgrade to the Senior by taking the Associate CET exam and paying an upgrade fee. The applicant must have scored 85% or higher on the applicable Stand-Alone exam. Journeyman upgrades are $50. Please call the ETA office to upgrade.
Master (CETma) Designation
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 the Master CET chart, in order to qualify. All certifications must be current. Passing score on all ETA exams is 75% or higher.
Master CETs can maintain the individual certifications that make up their Master CET if desired. In many cases, current certifications are required by employers. The Master CET certification itself is not maintainable.
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.
