The Associate Level certification called the Associate Certified Electronics Technician. The Associate certification is designed for technicians who have less than two years experience or trade school training for electronics technicians. All Certified Electronics Technicians must pass the Associate exam before they can qualify to sit for the full Journeyman certification. Once a technician has completed the two year program they should also take a journeyman option. The Associate certification is only good for two years. After the two year period, a technician must take an option for the Journeyman certification - the Associate can not be renewed.
