Electronics Technician Association Certification

From the ETA web site:ETA Web Link

"Founded in 1978, the Electronics Technicians Association, International is a not-for-profit, professional association promoting excellence in electronics technologies through certifications. The association’s initiatives are to provide a prominent certification program of competency criteria and testing benchmarks that steers international electronics standards and provides renowned professional electronics credentials."

"An ETA certification signifies that the holder has demonstrated professional proficiency and has the technical knowledge and skill to meet international electronics industry standards."

100% of Mid-State Communications technicians are ETA certified.  We have technicians at the Master, Senior, Journeyman and Associate levels.

Not only are our technicians certified with ETA core competencies but they are also certified on specific Motorola areas of specialization that carry their own ETA certification. For example we have technicians that are ETA certified on Motorola 7.x P25 digital communications systems and certified on Motorola R56 Grounding Standards.

This is in addition to the regular Motorola factory training, regional Motorola training and Motorola online training that our technicians participate in as a Premier Service Partner.

What does all this certification do for you as a customer?

Motorola test equipment and radio circa 1950's - 1960's

The IP based digital communications systems being installed today are "not your grandpa's" type of radio system. The days of tapping a tube with the handle of screw driver while listening to the radio and looking at a test set meter are over.

These new systems require a technician with a much more extensive background in not only the old basics of Analog Communications systems, RF theory, Antenna systems, Receiver theory, Transmitter theory, Power Supply theory, Tone Signaling and so on but also in TDMA and FDMA Digital Communications systems, Internet Protocol (IP) based communications systems, Routers and File Servers, T-1 circuits, Digital Microwave and so on.

The test equipment required to service these new digital communications systems has also evolved requiring an additional level of understanding on the part of the technician.

So basically instead of needing a "Radio Tech" to service and maintain the modern communications system, you need a Communication Network Systems Technician.

The certification process by Motorola, CSC and ETA provides a nationally standardized qualification process that proves to a customer that not only are the servicer's technicians competent to service these new systems but also that the service company itself is organized, structured and capable of the challenge.

Mid-State Communications is proud of its Motorola Service Elite Specialist appointment and thanks our technicians, and other service personnel, for the dedication, commitment and rigorous effort that they have put forth to become certified so that we can better serve our customers.
