Arlington, VA — Montgomery College’s Gudelsky Institute for Technical Education in Rockville, Maryland, will be the first school in the D.C. area to offer Level 1 of the Electronic Systems Technician curriculum. This curriculum was designed by the Consortium for Electronic Systems Technician Training, formed in 1998 by industry trade associations including CEDIA, CEA and HANA.
Classes at Montgomery College began January 29, and many companies in the D.C. area are sending their employees to the EST.
“The need for electronic systems technicians is incredible and the opportunity outstanding,” said Richard Goldman, president of the Consortium for EST Training and vice president of Home Systems Plus in Owings Mills, Maryland. “It’s the career for those who want to use their brains but not be stuck behind a desk or workbench all day. You get to use cutting-edge technology and work in many different settings.”
John Phillips, acting program director, Building and Construction Technology, at Montgomery College said that the Institute is thrilled to be the first school in the D.C. area to offer the Electronic Systems Technician curriculum. “We welcome this addition to our technical trades programs, and look forward to the opportunity to work with the Consortium and its members to provide a high-quality technical education to students who are interested in becoming an electronic systems technician.”
