Our National Qualifications in Practical Electronics are practical and experiential in nature, and provide skills in, and understanding of, electronics and its impact on society and environment. The Courses provide a solid foundation for those considering further study or a career in electrical engineering and related disciplines, and offer a valuable complementary practical experience for those studying Engineering Science, Physics or other science Courses.
