South Stanly students earn industry certification

Five students of the Electronics Technology Program at South Stanly High School earned industry recognized credentials this year.

The Electronics Technicians Association is the premiere certifying entity for all things electronics and technology.

Each student had to study specifics above and beyond the scope of the curriculum and pass a certification test demonstrating their mastery. Only a handful of students in North Carolina high schools have earned these awards which are recognized by business and industry leaders as valuable credentials.

The following students earned the ETA SET (Electronics Technician Association Student of Electronics Technology): Evan Faulkner, Dalton Culler, Will Gregory and Cheyenne Johnston.

Diggs actually went way above the scope of the SET and earned a Certified Electronics Technician Apprentice certificate.

This credential is the industry standard for journeymen electronics workers. His certification is the first in the state by a high school student via the Electronics Curriculum.

For information about the ETA visit http://www.eta-i.org  or contact instructor Bill Sorenson at Bill.Sorenson@stanlycountyschools.org.
