STRAC Students Develop the Skills Employers are Seeking

We stay in close contact with employers to make sure our curriculum teaches skills currently in demand in the industry, as well as those that will be in the future. Students earn 13 electronics certifications that are recognized by, and in some cases, required by employers. This means STRAC graduates are often hired at both entry- and mid-level positions, so they can start earning more right away.

Our Training Program Sets Students Up for Success

The program really helped me build confidence in myself. The instructors really take the time to make sure you’re understanding what it is that you’re learning. They really build you up and get you ready to have a full time job and a career.
