What is Year 10 Manufacturing Technology (Electronics)? 

Year 10 Manufacturing Technology (Electronics) prepares students for a Certificate II in Manufacturing Technology (Electronics) that will be offered in Years 11 and 12.

In this course students will learn the skills needed to safely undertake basic electrotechnology work and solve problems in extra-low voltage single-path and multiple-path DC circuits.

They will learn about environmentally sustainable work practices and the selection and use of materials, tools and components for electrical work.

This course also covers a General Safety Induction course (OnGuard Modules) – a preparation of industry requirements to work on Queensland construction sites, and some of the units needed for the first stage of an electrical apprenticeship.
