Level 2 Electronics
Students will learn to recognise electronic components and their symbols, construct and test circuits and learn techniques such as soldering and construction of printed circuit boards. They will develop critical thinking skills while constructing products based on specific requirements.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
This is an introductory certificate for people interested in electronics and who may wish to pursue further training and employment in this field. Students will gain an understanding of fundamental electrical concepts to explain the behaviour and use of electronic circuits. This includes testing circuits on prototype boards and transferring them on to Vero boards or printed circuit boards. They will learn the application of the above in the real world via a range of practical activities, experiments and demonstrations. After achieving this qualification, trainees may continue with any of the following:
• take up an apprenticeship in electronics and study for national certificates at Levels 3 and 4;
• study for a National Diploma in Engineering.
