Electronics Technology with FCC License Preparation is a distance learning course that was designed to help students obtain the General Radiotelephone Operator License (GROL) and gain a thorough education in electronics.
The General Radiotelephone Operator License (GROL) is required to adjust maintain, or internally repair any FCC licensed radiotelephone transmitters in the aviation, maritime and international fixed public radio services. It is issued for the lifetime of the holder.
Through the years CIE has been able to compile a great amount of information concerning the types of questions that the FCC include in their examinations. We revised the Electronics Technology with FCC License Preparation program to include this information and pass it along to you with additional hints that will help you obtain your FCC General Radiotelephone Operator License (GROL).
What You Will Learn
The curriculum is well rounded and is not restricted to a specific job or industry. It starts with the basics of electronics and then moves on to more advanced topics that include:
- AC and DC circuit theory
- Identifying components
- Working with printed circuit boards
- Power supplies
- Digital systems.
- Fiber optics
- Digital and data communication
- FCC GROL exam preparation and more!
Electronics Technology with FCC License Preparation contains 80 self-paced lessons with instructor support. You can take your exams online with our e-grade site or simply mail them in to us.
This program was created specifically for the distance learning student. Experience a step-by-step method of learning that allows you to complete each lesson at your own pace when it's convenient for you!
All the textbooks and instructor support are included with tuition. Our instruction staff works directly with you one-on-one to answer your questions and provide you with technical assistance when needed.

CET Test Preparation
Electronics Technology with FCC License Preparation also includes a study guide on how to prepare for the Associate-Level Certified Electronics Technician (CET) exam.
This test is administered by the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians and has over 46,000 certified technicians across the globe! Certification enables employers to separate knowledgeable job applicants from those with less training and skills.
CIE has an open enrollment policy and you can start this program at anytime. One of the advantages of enrolling with CIE is that you can study at your own pace. Some students go through the program slowly, others at an accelerated level - it really depends on you.
We can accommodate almost any arrangement that suits you best and with our generous time allotment of 18 months for Course 1A you can be assured to have enough time to complete your program.
