1. When did you first realize that you were interested in
Never really had an interest, just fell into it and realized I really
enjoyed the work.
2. Which specialty area of electronics did you decide is suited
Wasn’t smart enough for RADAR so, I became a Comm Tech
in the Navy. In the Advanced Electronics phase of my Navy
training we learned both RADAR and RF Communications.
3. Tell us about your career path and your current job.
I am completely content in the position I’m in. Sometimes I fill
in for P25 System Managers, sometimes I travel to customer
locations and make repairs, sometimes I travel for system triage.
4. Do you mentor others?
As of yet, I have not mentored others. However, I feel I could be
good at it.
5. Which hobbies do you enjoy?
Currently I enjoy 4-wheeling and anything outdoors.
"My title is Federal Systems Technologist. I travel filling
in for system managers, make repairs to systems,
triage systems, do system inventories, and I’ve been
told I am the break glass in case of emergency guy."
As of April 19, 2022, the FCC has implemented a $35 filing fee
for new commercial radio operator license applications (MROP,
GROL, GMDSS, etc.). ETA promptly files license applications
on behalf of individuals who complete FCC exam elements.
Applicants will now receive an email from the official FCC email
address instructing them to log into their CORES account to pay
the fee and finalize their pending application.

As one of only 12 COLEMs in the nation, ETA offers all of the
FCC commercial radio license exams. You can take any of these
tests from our many ETA-approved test sites. You may also take
any of these tests online through ETA's Trapeza online testing
site (a Certification Administrator will still be required to proctor
the exam). The Montgomery GI Bill also covers FCC exams for
reimbursement for qualified military personnel.
