A Shortage of Skilled People|
The Electronics Technicians Association (ETA International)* reports that
there is a critical shortage of electronics technicians. Today's
technicians are retiring faster than the next generation is being trained
to replace them
Nowhere to Train
The Electronics Technicians Association is engaged
in a campaign to interest people in careers in electronics. However,
although many universities have programs in electrical engineering, there
are fewer options for those who are interested in electronics service and
repair. Some community colleges still have excellent electronics
technology programs, but many have curtailed or eliminated such
programs. Private vocational schools are excellent places to train and
enter the workforce quickly. However, many such schools have phased out
their electronics courses or closed altogether. Students interested in
electronics technology have dwindling choices.
