Radar (RAD)

Radar (RAD)

Radar electronics technicians are expected to obtain knowledge of radar basics and concepts, which are then applicable to all the various types of avionics, maritime and land radar systems. Radar Electronics Technicians must be knowledgeable and have abilities in the following technical and human relations areas: block diagrams and schematics, components, cabling and antennas, hand tools & soldering, mathematics, amplifiers, radar transceivers, interfacing, satellite, wireless, and data communications, computers and digital concepts, software-programming, troubleshooting, and people relations.

If you hold a valid FCC Element 8, and either the ETA Associate CET (CETa), General Communications Technician – Level 1 (GCT1), or a Journeyman (CET) certification, then you are eligible for a rollover to an ETA RADAR certification! To apply, you will need to send a copy of your Element 8 certificate to ETA via fax (765) 653-4287 or email. You may also attach when filling out the online form. Element 8+ rollovers are $75.
