Digital Electronics with Lab I

This certificate course introduces students to digital electronics. Learn to build and troubleshoot digital circuits found in digital readouts with hands-on lab experiments.

Course Description
This course is designed to for the beginner who wants to learn about digital electronics. It will show you with detailed step-by-step lessons and a hands-on training lab how they work, how to actually build and troubleshooting digital circuits.

Learn about the digital numbering system, logic gates and truth tables. In addition to digital devices such as flip flops, counters, adders, multiplexers and demultiplexers.

The laboratory portion of the course elaborates on these subjects with hands-on experiments to further explain them.

Instructor Support & Certificate
Includes instructor support and you can take your exams online on our e-grade web site.

Best of all, you'll earn a Certificate of Completion in Digital Electronics suitable for framing when you're finished!
