Some employers will require you to have industry certifications in order to work as an electronics technician, but not all. DoD (Department of Defense) contractors like Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and L3 Harris are required by the DoD to employ Certified Electronics Technicians.

Other employers use certifications to validate a job candidate’s skills and abilities. This is why certifications can give you an advantage when you’re looking for employment. STRAC students earn the specific industry certifications employers request the most.

Another advantage of earning certifications is that they can help you get hired at a mid-level position instead of an entry-level position, which means you can start earning more right away.

STRAC describes our graduates and our program. STRAC is old Army slang, and part of the definition is “a well-organized, well-turned-out soldier (pressed uniform, polished brass and shined boots).” This term was chosen when our student body was exclusively veterans. The second part of the definition, “a proud, competent trooper who can be depended on for good performance in any circumstance,” describes our graduates both yesterday and today. The acronym STRAC highlights our program’s focus on Skills TRaining And Certification.

After Veterans Assembled electronics was approved as a proprietary electronics school in the three states we operate in, the company filed to do business as (dba) “STRAC Institute.” We changed our name to STRAC to make it clear that our program is now open to both veterans and non-veterans.
