NIC adds apprenticeship training to Electronics Technician program

August 9, 2019

North Island College’s Electronics Technician Core certificate program has added apprenticeship training, which will allow the program to meet Industry Training Authority requirements for the Electrician Apprenticeship Harmonized Level 1. “Industrial electronics and electrician training are two sides of the same coin,” said Cory Batch, NIC’s Electronics Technician Core certificate instructor. “Much of the training was already included in the program. Making this small change means students get credit for that knowledge and skillset which they can use to further their training.” Graduates of the program can move into NIC’s Industrial Automation diploma.
