    im getting ready to finish up my 2 year electronics technician degree and am looking to get an entry level certification. im looking at aCET from this site: http://www.eta-i.org/students_technicians.html i was just wondering how many of my fellow electronics enthusiasts have a similar certification? how hard is the test? what kind of study materials did you use? it will look good on a resume too!

    Please, don't put out any money on a certificate program until you know how that certificate is perceived by prospective employers.

    I agree. The various certifying "societies" and "professional associations" that I've seen were just scams and none of my employers or colleagues have cared about any of them.
