Bedrock Learning is offering a new online course, called “Fundamentals for Electronic Systems Technicians” (FEST), that has been designed to cover key principles of construction methods, electrical basics, job site safety, tools, and industry standards.
Technical principles of structured wiring including cabling, components, and outlets are presented and explained. Detailed step-by-step design and installation procedures, testing and troubleshooting methods are covered, along with an introduction to the many different electronic systems and their benefits.
The eight-hour online course utilizes the latest techniques for online learning with interactive activities, animation, videos, and voiceover for expanded knowledge and better understanding.
Offered online, the FEST course is available 24/7, for $149, and $199 with a full-color printed course guide.
Upon completion of FEST, students are prepared for industry-recognized certifications, including C-EST by the Electronic Systems Professional Alliance (ESPA) and several Electronics Technicians Association and International (ETA-I) certifications. Vocational and community colleges have the ability to easily implement all of Bedrock Learning’s online courses and material in to the classroom.
“This course lays a solid foundation for students looking for a career in integrating technologies in buildings and homes," said Helen Heneveld, president of Bedrock Learning. "Now is the time to prepare our youth for the demand for connectivity in all aspects of our lives. All of our other courses build upon this essential knowledge and deliver a full curriculum for the industry.”.
The educational course is divided into 13 sections. Each ends with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the end of the course allows students to demonstrate their new found knowledge of the fundamentals for an EST. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a Certificate of Completion and are prepared for hands-on work on a jobsite and/or product-specific training by manufacturers.
