Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Systems

This certificate is one of our more popular certificates becoming a staple as an entry in the technical industry whether you’re a student out of secondary school or experience industry worker this is an fundamental qualification serving as a foundation to pursue more niche specializations locally or internationally. As more people enter the technical industry it is important to distinguish yourself from being capable to being fully knowledgeable of the field and able to approach every scenario or at least understand it. What the technical industry in Trinidad wants is not someone certified anymore but someone qualified and capable. A.S.T.I has been distinguished in the electronics and telecommunication industry for over a year with graduates performing locally and internationally promoting quality and innovation in these fields.

Due to the fundamental nature of this certification students require no pre-requisite knowledge thou it will be useful for the more niche topics or their future specializations. This course has a broad overview covering the fundamental theory of electricity and electronics, working through to cabling and test equipment, design and implementation of simple systems and finally special applications in core industry such as Radio Communication, AV systems, Optics, Telecommunication fundamentals and the design/interface of these systems


After having completed the base certificate graduates will be capable of the design, installation, troubleshooting and maintenance of fundamental circuits and electronic systems as well as understand and approach all other specialized circuit components and vendor specific electronic systems with the knowledge gained.
